Note: it is very important that you pay your tuition fee at Wageningen University on time!

Only after you paid your tuition fee, you can apply for a room with priority based on your home address.

Because we expect many international students this year, we suggest you also apply for rooms that are not your first choice.

Additionally we recommend you look at the private market in Wageningen or the surrounding towns to see if there is a room available. Check the information below for the different housing organisations.

The available rooms of DUWO and Socius are advertised via as well.

It is possible to respond to a furnished or unfurnished room. If you have a unfurnished room there is nothing in your room, so you have to buy a bed, mattress, table or desk, chair(s), and kitchen supplies. It is possible to buy these things second hand on the Facebook page ‘Wageningen Student Plaza’, on, or at second hand shops in Wageningen.
