BREDA STUDENT CITY
STUDENT ASSOCIATIONS, SORORITIES & FRATERNITIES
Even though Breda is not an “official” student city, there are several student associations, fraternities, and sororities. Attached to the academy of Hotel and Facility Management are S.A. Xenia and SV ‘t KAG.
At the InterSib you will definitely meet them, they will present themselves and will be out and about at the Warande. And you can hang out with the people of the associations, ask them questions and party with them.
A student association can spice up your student-life a bit and make things easier for you as you will get in contact with people from different years and ages. If you are not at all interested in student associations, fraternities or sororities, don’t worry. Breda has something to offer for all of us and we are sure you are going to love it here!!
Well.. this might give you an idea of what is waiting for you in Breda! If you have questions about anything, please send an e-mail! Remember; we are here to help you!
Going out in Breda
For us students there is something going on in Breda every day of the week. Nice places to go to as a student are; Café Dunne, Café de Kater, Café Walkabout, Peddels, Dependance, and Café Janssen. These are just some of the nice places the city has to offer for a nice drink or dancing!

Student Association Xenia
Welcome new student, or ‘Sibje’ as we like to call our first years. You will be starting a new chapter in your life, and our student association Xenia is here to make those years the best! S.A. Xenia was founded on May 30th 2002, by six students of NHTV Academy of Hotel management (now Breda University of Applied Sciences). ‘Xenia’ means ‘Friendship & Hospitality’ in Greek.
We are an innovative and creative association with two sororities, one mixed fraternity, and one fraternity. Our goal is to provide you with the best student life in Breda by parties, network possibilities, annual activities like the gala and the beer cantus, and so much more!
Studenten Vereniging ‘t KAG
Studentenvereniging ’t Komt Allemaal Goed
Our student association is known as S.V. ’t KAG. We are a group of friends where everyone is welcome! The perks of our student association ’t KAG are that there are no obligations and no initiations involved. Every Tuesday Café de Kater is filled with beer obsessed KAGgers, so don’t hesitate to join us during on a Tuesday. This can give you the opportunity to get a feel for the atmosphere and to get to know us as well as to find out if S.V. ’t KAG is the association for you.
Besides the Tuesday nights, S.V. ‘t KAG also organizes many activities during the year. This will give you a chance to meet many of your fellow students. The annual activities are for example: a pub-crawl, bowling, a skitrip to ‘Dutchweek’ in Val Thorens, a BBQ and our KAG-weekend. Ofcourse we can’t forget the KAG theme parties and so much more!
We look forward to seeing you in Café de Kater on Tuesday, feel free to join our first parties of the year: Our Pub-crawl and the BBQ!
We are looking forward to meet you at the Intersib, and wish you the best time.

Sorority NYX is the only international sorority (in Dutch ‘damesdispuut’) of Breda and is part of S.A. Xenia. NYX stands for the Greek goddess of the night, and we are proud to carry that name and honour it by enriching the nightlife of Breda. We are a group of fun, spontaneous, enthusiastic girls that love to spend time with each other by going out and experiencing the student life in Breda. Whether it’s a lovely dinner with the girls, visiting parties and events in the city centre, Sorority NYX is always present! Come and join us every Wednesday in our home bar Studio Dependance or Café Dunne for some beers and Flugel!
Having been founded on the 21st of March 2012, Fraternity Palto is the youngest of all the sororities and fraternities within Student Association Xenia. Nevertheless, we are the first international fraternity within the association and the BUas Academy of Hotel Management.
As Fraternity Palto, we have a mission to promote the highest standards of unity, internationalism and professionalism for our members. Additionally, we want to be of added value for Student Association Xenia in terms of support by helping on all fronts and creating a broader platform for its members and their interests. Academic performance is critical to us, and therefore we actively support each other with our studies while striving for ambitious goals.
If you are interested in getting to know us better or are just curious about our vision, you are welcome to send an e-mail to email@example.com or walk in at Café Janssen during one of our Thursday night drinks!

Life is a journey, explore it! That is the spirit of Damesdispuut Inana. Our sorority is linked to BUas’ school of Hotel Management, which means professional development is one of our highest priorities. However, that doesn’t mean that we do not enjoy a cold beer at any moment of the day. On Tuesday nights, you will find our Purple Army in Feestcafé Peddels, dancing the night away. Are you interested in meeting our lovely ladies and experience a Burgundian evening? Don’t hesitate to come meet us at the InterSib or pay us a visit in Peddels!
