Gamestate Arcade games
The range of games is very large and it is a fantastic feeling when you have won a lot of pink cards after a game!
Beach Oog in Al (SOIA)
Nice grass area to sit along the big canal that is perfect for sunny days
Pool cafe Hart van Utrecht
If you want some good nachos and pitchers of beers to share with your friends over a game of pool, this is the place to go. Plus, it’s a great way to prove to your friends how good you are at pool, especially if they did not believe you at first
Vintage store Episode
Episode is the epitome of an organized chaos. There are way too many things in the store, yet they are neatly sectioned according to colour, material and types. If you have an unconventional themed party to attend to, I’m sure you’ll be able to find something jaw dropping at Episode for it
I think that Lebowski is one of the “must” places for students since it has a great atmosphere and organizes many events, e.g pub-quiz.
Fortress bij Rijnauwen
It’s hard to miss Fort Rijnauwen if you go on your morning runs around the forest in Amelisweerd. The history behind the walls adds a bit of character to the forest and its beautiful flora and fauna. The sunset walks there are amazing too, definitely check it out in the early months of May, when it’s the perfect weather
As a student at the Faculty of Humanities, you can regularly find me in the SVO bar. It is a nice place to study and in the evening when the bar opens for activities, it turns into a cozy meeting place.
It is such a beautiful building to visit and to take a picture of. As it is located nicely in the centre of the city, I love taking a walk around the area, visiting the building and proudly saying that I'm a UU student :)
Feestcafé De Vrienden
In "De Vrienden" it is always busy, if you really want to dance well then you should not be here. But it's a good place to meet new people!
Leidsche Rijn centrum
Every once in a while I grab my bike and cycle to Leidsche Rijn Centrum. It always feels like I'm in another world for a while. And of course I always grab the Jumbo Foodmarket before I go back.
De Neude square
Square De Neude is a meeting place for me and my friends, as it is located in the city centre.
