Tilburg has rapidly emerged as a real city for students. It is the sixth largest city in the Netherlands in terms of population, with relatively many students. Every year more than 28.000 students come to Tilburg to study at the Tilburg University, Avans Hogescholen and Fontys. During the day a stream of cycling students connects the University with the city center. In the evening the students find each other in one of Tilburg’s many pubs and cafes.
