Reserved Accommodation

The reserved options are carefully chosen by the University. We have reserved rooms at our preferred suppliers for a part of our first year international students. Be sure to reserve the rooms as soon as you can, because in the past rooms are often filled up rather quickly. In previous years only 30% of all first-year international students were able to book a room by a preferred supplier.

We have different housing options for degree students and exchange students.

  • There is a limited availability.
  • Our preferred suppliers offer rooms for 6 months (for exchange students) or 1 year (for full-year Exchange students and Degree students) with fixed contract dates

Shortstay vs Longstay accommodation

  • Shortstay
