Accommodation

After finalising your pathway and bachelor programme choices, accommodation is one of the most important decisions you will need to make. It's vital that you feel happy and safe in your new home. We recommend you start booking early (from 1 April onwards). The earlier you start the booking process, the surer you are to find a comfortable place to stay.  Please note that room numbers are limited.

Our team will help in booking student housing for this first year of your stay in Holland. You can always reach out to the team for advice or support. We will do our very best to provide accommodation to all students, however we are unable to guarantee a room if you apply late. Finding accommodation is your own responsibility. 

Need advice? Reach out to the college!
If you have questions or if you would like to receive further advice, please reach out to the college via general@twentepathway.nl. After you have contacted us, we will start offering support. Please keep in mind that finding accommodation is your own responsibility. A permanent address is required for visa purposes.


From March onwards we will give more detailed information about the booking process via Camelot and Xior and via other housing providers.

RENTING A ROOM VIA THE PUBLIC SECTOR

A room in a student house
Once you successfully finish the foundation year and are ready to start your Bachelor’s programme at the University of Twente, you will most probably relocate. You will have plenty of opportunities, depending on the lifestyle you choose and the budget you have. University of Twente may assist in finding suitable accommodation, but you may also choose to find your own apartment, or share an apartment with your new international friends. The rent for furnished housing varies from € 300 to € 600 per month for on-campus, shared facilities, and € 320 to € 770 per month for off-campus, private facilities.

RENTING A STUDIO OR A WHOLE APARTMENT 

Renting a studio or a whole apartment
This is the most expensive option. Price for studios usually starts from € 800 per month. You can use the same websites as for searching for a room. You will have the apartment for yourself. Very often the studio is located on a nice location, well maintained and you will have no end date of the contract.

When renting an apartment, we recommend you share it with other students if possible, so the expenses go lower.

From April onwards we will publish a list with housing providers offering rooms/studios/apartments. We will also share information about how to book.
