Avans University is a hub for open-minded people sharing the same passion, to help the environment! There is a strong bond that can be formed with teachers and other students, during the years.The Lovensdrijkstraat Xplora building is a really nice place to work, as the windows bring in natural light, so it doesn't feel like you've been cooped up inside studying all day. Accomodation in Breda is hard to find, but through Facebook it is easier to sub-rent a room.
