Emma Rodríguez Montes, University of Oviedo, Spain

The very first time that I arrived in Antwerp I was shocked by the beauty of the city. Although I had seen it before in pictures, it was much more impressive when I saw the place by myself. Then the buildings of the University were as gorgeous as the rest of the city. The perfect integration between the original old building of the city campus with the modern renovation of the surrounding constructions results in a very adequate space for studying.

I think that is one of the best things I experienced in Antwerpen: the universitary life. Taking into account the centric placement of the city campus and the student neighbourhood around, the whole area makes you feel part of student life. Also the facilities provided by the library, the Agora building and the shops and retail stores make students' life much easier and nicer.
