Study spots in Enschede

Library Enschede + STOET

If you are looking for a silent working spot, you should go to the Enschede Library. The library is a perfect spot to take some time for yourself and to focus completely. When you are ready for a break, you only need to pack your stuff and move to one of the tables at STOET. STOET is a popular place in the city centre to work or study. Next to that, it has an amazing menu with sandwiches, salades, soups, bowls and pancakes.

Twentsche Foodhal

This location is not in the city centre and probably not the first place you will think of when you are looking for a place to study. From Thursdaynight - Sunday, the Twentsche Foodhal is the location for food and drinks in tapas style.

Nevertheless is the Foodhal opened every day from 09:00 - 17:00 for everyone who would like to study or work. There are many charging points and between 11:30 - 14:30 you can order yourself a delicious lunch.

Bagels & Beans

Bagels & Beans was my first study spot outside my own home. The relaxing atmosphere and the good dishes on the menu made sure that I was able to study all day long. Take a seat at the big table in the back or pick one of my favourite seats: a spot at the window. It is always nice to see what is happening outside during the day.
