Studying in Hengelo

Hengelo is a medium-sized city, which means all sports and recreational facilities are just a bike ride away. Student city Enschede, home to e.g. the University of Twente, is also easily accessible by bike. Of course, Hengelo itself offers plenty of places to go out and meet other students. There is no reason to ever feel bored.

Grand-café De Twee Wezen, for example, is a popular place to grab a drink and meet up with friends. At Het Pleintje, opposite city hall, you can enjoy a drink and dance until your feet hurt in Rootie Tootie. Student association Cognatio regularly hosts events in Danscafe Twins.

Hengelo is in tenth place on the list of Dutch cities with the best cultural and sports facilities. The adventurous and athletic are well catered for in this town. Studying in Hengelo is great – just ask one of the Tio students you can meet during one of the open days.

Hengelo back in the days

Hengelo was and still is a city of industry. In the past, the textile industry flourished here, as it did in the rest of the region of Twente. Later, Stork took the initiative of developing the metal sector. Stork’s buildings are found throughout Hengelo; even the atmospheric Tio building on the Julianalaan was originally constructed by Stork as a domestic science school.

You can also go the traditional route and place an ad in door-to-door publications or regional newspapers (although these options are not free).

Checklist for students living on their own

Besides finding a room, there are some other important things to take care of when you want to live on your own. Think of, for example, taking out household insurance and arranging an internet connection. Prizewize has drawn up a checklist for students living on their own (Dutch students only). This can act as a guideline, so you do not overlook anything important.
