Student information

Student Housing

Wageningen University & Research has several groups of international students. We understand that it is very hard to look for your own place in a different country. Below you can find the information how to apply for a room.

Allocating authority Idealis

The Student Service Centre of Wageningen University & Research will no longer be the allocating authority for the rooms owned by the university. Instead, Idealis (the main student housing cooperation in Wageningen), will be the allocating authority for all rooms of Idealis and Wageningen University & Research together.

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.
