by Pavlik_NL

Students in the Netherlands often choose to stay in their university of HBO town. This means that in these towns often there is a shortage in rooms and appartments, especially within the centre. Though in the suburbs often prices are relatively lower, public transport is good and given space is often larger, students want to be PER SE in the centre (this no doubt has something to do with the fact thata here is the nightlife, the cafe's and other entertainment). In the Netherlands it's quite usual that buildings (monuments included) are prepared with student rooms. At the first floor a shop is present, while a separate staircase leads to the simple living quarters at the second and top floors. Sometimes living in such location can be quite spectacular.
