The Hague can be described as an internationally oriented metropolis by the sea. It is the capital of the province of South Holland and the third largest city in the Netherlands with almost 500.000 inhabitants and more than 100 nationalities. The Hague has an important role for the Dutch as it is also the city where the seat of the Dutch Government and the Supreme Court is and where you can find the International Court of Justice, the International Criminal Court, and various other important international organisations.
The Hague is a great and vibrant city where you can find beautiful residences, sophisticated charm and an international (working) environment. It is a city where you can learn and live. The city not only offers you interesting studies (30,000 students live here) but next to culture there is also a lot of nature to explore in and around The Hague. For instance 11 kilometers of coastline. It does not have a university however does have various higher educational institutes (De Haagse Hogeschool, Hogeschool Inholland, Hotelschool Den Haag etc.) In the Hague it is typically a bit easier to find a room vs Rotterdam, Delft or even Leiden, therefore many students decide to live in The Hague. However in case you want to commute to these cities the location becomes of paramount relevance (naturally a location close to train-station, such as Den Haag Centraal or Den Haag Moerwijk is then highly preferred)
