Putting your name down for accommodation

You can apply for these rooms on when you are registered.

You must also be registered as a full-time student with an educational institution (also for work placement and obtaining a doctorate) in the same region to be eligible to rent the room. Full-time international students studying in the Netherlands can also apply for this kind of accommodation. As a new first year student you can additionally obtain accommodation up to 4 months prior to the start date of your studies. 

No registration period

Important: other than obtaining accommodation based on the length of your registration period, by going down this route there is in principle no waiting time involved. Furthermore: housing benefits do not always apply to this type of accommodation (you'll find the information with the add).
