Discover student life and the city of Utrecht

Mike’s favourites

Board games shop Subcultures
There are so many amazingly designed board games out there, and it's delightful to walk in a place like Subcultures and be completely surrounded by them.

Boulder hall Energiehaven
I started bouldering around the time that I started my Masters program and absolutely fell in love with it. Energiehaven sets a very high standard for boulder gyms. The routes are changed frequently and are often very creative. The hall is large and there's even an outdoor wall.

Louis Hartlooper Complex
Great cinema to watch smaller or art-house films

Art house

Buys Ballot building
I often used studyplaces here to work on group assignments

Juliana Park
I can't believe I only went here recently. This is such a nice place to visit if you want to see some animals, but don't feel like paying money or traveling to another city. It's also a great place to drop by if they ran out of chicken at your supermarket :)

Koningsberger building
I spent many hours here in the beautiful labs and meeting friends at my study association

Leonard S. Ornstein Laboratory
What I like about the laboratory is the good atmosphere, and the interesting research that is performed there.

David de Wied building
I used to come her daily during my Bachelor thesis. Up on the 4th floor I would tiny catalyst particles made of silver. The building has a very open feel due to its large glass windows, and internal balconies from which you can observe each individual floors.

U.S.S. Proton
Like most chemistry students, I joined Proton immediately at the start of the Bachelor. During my studies I have joined 4 different committees and helped organize many activities, both recreational and educational. I have also enjoyed many activities organized by other committees, like borrels, parties, and trips/camps.
