Final comments
I would recommend to stay in a student residence, because you never feel alone. Moreover, you should look for a residence in the city centre and not outside of Antwerp (like in Wilrijk) because most of the student life is taking place in the centre. Brugge, Gent and Leuven are really nice cities.
