Students are never too far away in Ghent. Many of the city’s impressive buildings are connected to the globally renowned Ghent University, and you’ll always find many students in those buildings. However, there are many other places to get a taste of the authentic student atmosphere. The Arts Quarter, for example, with the stunning Booktower as its centre. Or the beautiful Achtersikkel square, where music school students can be heard slaving away on their scores.
