Relocation obligation

In principle, staff members of the University of Twente are not obliged to move house. Only if the interest of the service department so requires, can the faculty or service department impose an obligation to move. If you are required to move, you must do everything that can be reasonably expected from you in order to move to the place of employment as soon as possible. Click here for more information on the place of employment.

The faculty or service department may request you to provide information on the progress of your efforts to move. If the faculty or service department is of the opinion that you are making a good effort, in anticipation of your removal to the place of employment you are entitled to an allowance for the costs of accommodation outside your place of residence and an allowance for travelling costs in connection with home visits or visits to the family. If your faculty or service department is of the opinion that you make too little effort to move as soon as possible, it can be decided to (partly) terminate these allowances.
