With long summer daylight hours, students in the Haarlem area love being close to the seaside cities of Bloemendaal and Zandvoort. And, of course, students love a good beach party. Bloemendaal aan Zee was listed in Times Magazine for having one of Europe's 10 best beach parties.
The city of Haarlem also organises many cultural events such as Culinary Haarlem and Haarlem Jazz in the summer. Every year on 5 May, the oldest Liberation Day Festival (Bevrijdingspop) in The Netherlands is held in 'the Hout´ attracting over 100,000 visitors.
Becoming a member of a student association will help you make the most of your student days in Haarlem. It is also useful for developing your network of contacts for your future career.
The student associations below are open to any student in higher education including ESN (Erasmus Student Network) and have created their own websites independent of Inholland. Please send your questions and comments to the relevant student association.
