Nijmegen is the oldest city in the Netherlands. As Ulpia Noviomagus Batavorum, it received 100 market rights around the year. In 1230 Nijmegen became a free imperial city and in 1402 a Hanseatic city. After Nijmegen once housed a Quarterly Academy between 1655 and 1679, the city has been a university city since the arrival of the Catholic University (since 2004 also known as Radboud University) in 1923.
