Alternative accommodation

The University of Twente only mediates for furnished on- and off-campus accommodation. However, if you prefer unfurnished accommodation, there are many on- and off-campus opportunities for you as well. In order to help you find your way among the many possibilities, we have written the ‘Handbook Alternative Accommodation’ for you.

For your convenience, we have listed some useful links:

For long stay (longer than 3 months)

For short stay (shorter than 3 months):

Portals (Short and Long stay)

Avoid scams

We have received reports of students being scammed when looking for accommodation. Please keep in mind to never pay high, out of proportion, amounts of money prior to signing a contract and/or viewing a room! Download the Handbook Alternative Accommodation above for more information.
