Probably the most important neighbourhoods for students are the Schilderswijk and the Zeeheldenbuurt. The area is an old nineteenth century neighbourhood, which shows by all the historic streets and buildings. If you choose to live here, you will experience living in a typical Dutch nineteenth century neighbourhood! Many of the student accommodations are even in the possession of their own garden! The most popular park is also located in this area; the Noorderplantsoen. Every citizen, student, families or elderly people, will go to the Noorderplantsoen when the spring starts to come around. It is a lovely place to have a picnic together with your fellow students, or to take your study books and combine studying with sunbathing.
