How can I apply for a room?

Once you have been admitted and have registered for the master Water Technology at the Wageningen University, you should start looking for accommodation. We recommend you to start early with finding suitable accommodation. This way you can ensure you find the right place to live during your study.

For students from countries outside the EU-union we have a room guarantee agreement with our official accommodation partnerĀ StudentStay. This way you do not have to worry about finding a room for the first year of your studies. Depending on the room availability EU students are also welcome to register for a room via their website.

Students have their own (bed)room with a sink and they share kitchen, laundry and bathroom facilities. The houses are furnished and provided with internet, floorcovering and curtains. All private rooms have at least a bed, wardrobe, and desk & chair. Each house has one washing machine and the kitchen is fully equipped. The houses are located in different neighbourhoods of Leeuwarden and the students live in close contact with local people.

StudentStay provides information about the application procedure. You will be contacted by StudentStay after paying the invoice of the Wageningen University and your registration at StudentStay. Please wait for StudentStay to contact you by e-mail. StudentStay starts to contact students about three months before the start of the programme. Registration is free of charge.

After registration, you can start to respond to the available housing offers on their website under Wetsus. If more than one person responds to a housing offer, the room will be offered to the person with the highest ranking. Ranking depends on the date of registration and on, if applicable, your priority status. After acceptance of a room, you will be provided with information about key collection and the tenancy contract.

You are also free to organize housing in Leeuwarden yourself that meets your specific private requirements (see housing platforms).
