International Office is the linking pin between local housing providers and admitted international UT students, employees, and guests. We mediate for furnished on- and off-campus accommodation on behalf of three local housing providers: de Veste, Stadsweide, and the ITC International Hotel. International Office will do its best to find suitable accommodation for you, however, no guarantees can be given due to the limited availability of accommodation.

Procedure & deadlines

Visa students who have completed both their visa application and their application for housing before 1 December (start 1 February) or before 1 July (start 1 September), will be treated with priority. All students applying for accommodation after 1 December/1 July will be served on a first come-first served basis. International Office will do its utmost to provide all applying students with an offer for accommodation. We encourage all students to look for alternative accommodation.

Would you like to make use of the services offered by International Office? Please read the information on this website carefully before submitting your application for accommodation.

Note: International Office merely offers a mediation service. If you accept an offer for accommodation, you will sign a rental agreement with one of the local housing providers and will be subject to their rules and regulations.
