Student Housing: How can I find my own house in Apeldoorn?

You will find available housing or local real estate companies details on websites or by just walking into a real estate agent company.

Student Housing: I am a new student and currently live with a relative. Can I still opt for student housing in Apeldoorn?
Yes you can opt to live in the Wittenborg student housing. You will need to contact firstname.lastname@example.org in order to fulfil the financial requirements apart from filling up the room application form Wittenborg Apeldoorn as a start.
Students from the EU
Students from non-EU countries
You will be allocated a room in either an apartment or campus complex, sharing a common area and all facilities with other students, both male and female.
After the package-fee period, which means after the first 2 blocks (approximately 3-3.5 months), we encourage you to find your own accommodation. Many students decide to find accommodation together with their newly made friends! This also means that our rooms will then be available again to new students arriving at Wittenborg.
On the FAQ page of Wittenborg-Online, you will find contact information of local real estate companies and student housing providers/agencies in Apeldoorn, so you will have plenty of time to arrange your next accommodation.
If, after the first rental period, you decide to stay on in one of the rooms provided by Wittenborg, the deadline of your rental extension has to be followed as stated in your Student Housing Contract.

What is Basisregistratie Personen (BRP)?
If you have moved to the Netherlands and intend to live here for more than 4 months, you must register yourself in the Basisregistratie Personen – BRP (Personal Records Database). You can do this by visiting the City Hall of your municipality.
if you move to another municipality in the Netherlands, you must notify the new
municipality of your change of address.
Once you register in the BRP, you will receive your BSN.
Failing to do these might result in withdrawal of study visa by the Dutch Immigration Office (IND). In such a case you will be required to leave the country and apply for a new MVV (entry visa) from your home country to continue with your studies. Eventually, it will cost you time and money.
note: You must
inform Registry Office (email@example.com) whenever you change your address within
the Netherlands. The same applies when you are planning to deregister from the
City Hall and leave the country for a temporary period of time or permanently.
