Studying in Leeuwarden? You have to experience it!

Studying in Leeuwarden offers more! In Leeuwarden, after having put in your hours at VHL, you can relax in the countless bars, trendy cafes, discotheques and on the dazzling Thursday night 'the night when students paint the town red', you can enjoy yourself until the early morning. In short, we welcome you in Leeuwarden!

With its three colleges and a number of university locations, Leeuwarden is a true student city. Not so long ago Leeuwarden was even appointed 'student city of the Netherlands'. The historical town of Leeuwarden is located in the north of Holland, in the province of Friesland, and is only a 1.5 hour ride away from Amsterdam. The city boasts its own lop sided tower, de Oldehove, which is almost as askew as the tower of Pisa and counts many beautifully restored little alleys and canals. It also hosts a number of interesting museums on all kinds of subjects. Quite a few Leeuwarder inhabitants speak Dutch as well as Frisian, the second language of the Netherlands.

There is a special cooperation with other colleges and local government that provides a number of study related matters of importance to you. From housing to a profitable sport card, and from events to useful tips. In short, Leeuwarden is your student city of choice!
