Shopping opportunities

The next supermarket is within walking distance of about 5 minutes. It is open Monday to Saturday until 22:00. In the neighbourhood, you can also reach several discounters by bike or bus. Because of the proximity to the Netherlands, it is also possible to go shopping there and these shops are also open on Sundays.

In the dormitory you can also use our drinks sale. The most common drinks are sold here at fair prices.

In addition to these offers, there is also a vending machine for drinks and snacks, which will quickly end acute thirst or attacks of hunger.
