This student neighbourhood has quite the interesting backstory: initially, it was built to house athletes during the 1972 Summer Olympics. However, because the area started to look quite old and bleak in time, the entire village was torn down and then rebuilt in two years, between 2007 and 2009. This time, the Olympic Village isn’t hosting athletes, but a community of thousands of local students. Not far from the city centre, this student neighbourhood has more than 3,000 units and is beautifully enclosed by a green area. Because every single resident in this neighbourhood is a student, Olympic Village has a strong sense of community and offers some of the best student amenities in the country.
