Take a look inside Maastricht's student studios

Are you going to start your new life in the ancient city Maastricht soon and are you wondering what our residences look like in reality? If that's the case, follow our vlogger Ciana Mayam for a day exploring our modern studios of Bassin and DOK01 and the city's Burgundian hospitality.

Together with Matt, our Area Manager in Maastricht, Ciana takes the chance to have a detailed look inside our semi-furnished and furnished student studios. First, they visit Bassin, a recently renovated building on the edge of the Bassin, a small inland port. Bassin is located in a calm neighborhood, which is perfectly located and easily accessible by car, bike, and public transport. It only takes 5 minutes to walk to the city center, so you don't even need a bike here!

Next, Matt and Ciana cross the street to reach the brand-new residences of DOK01. DOK01 is located at the banks of river Meuse and consists of 97 fully furnished studios. This means that you can move into your new home without spending time on a what-to-buy checklist. All residences of this modern complex are equipped with a private kitchen and private bathroom. Bunk beds free up some space for a living area, with the sofa doubling as an extra bed. Offering an amazing view of the beautiful river Meuse, the studios will be filled with a huge amount of natural light, which makes studying and working from home more pleasant than ever.

After visiting the studios, Ciana goes around some of the best spots in town picked by Matt, who is also a Maastricht resident. Starting from the Lumière building - an exceptional theater that shows new wave movies - they head to Bold, a rooftop cocktail bar on top of the movie theatre Pathé. Next, they visit Markt square and Vrijthof square, where visitors get the most of the Maastricht vibe. Spoiler alert: in this video, Matt will show you where you can eat the best French fries in Maastricht, as well as how to greet as locals do.

As a travel freak who moved from Hanoi to Eindhoven, I love spending my day discovering new angles of this city and learning about the country from the locals. Hopefully, my articles would help you step-by-step entering the world of Dutch culture and make your every day in the Netherlands ‘a great stay’!
