Living in Amsterdam: How can I find student housing in Amsterdam?
Wittenborg is continuously looking for possibilities to support students with finding suitable accommodation in Amsterdam. However, the responsibility for finding a room in Amsterdam ultimately lies with the student. Finding a place to live in Amsterdam can be quite a challenge; therefore, we recommend you to look for your new home as early as possible. It is also possible to opt for Student Housing in Apeldoorn. The distance between the Amsterdam campus and Apeldoorn is around 1.5 hours by train and costs around 17 euro one way (www.ns.nl).
We recommend students to few companies/organizations who can help students in their accommodation. You can find detailed information via Wittenborg main website here. Amsterdam Student Housing (wittenborg.eu)

Meeting Invitation: Why the error message "undelivered" has been sent while responding to a meeting invitation?
If a meeting has been created with any field (Subject, title, or message body) empty, then the recipient will receive the automated error message in reply that their "response was not delivered" after responding to the meeting invitation. However, this may not affect their response and their response may still be recorded. Also, if they have accepted the meeting using their phones, this issue might occur.
In such cases, it is always recommended to confirm with the recipient after, if they have received your response.

Mitigating Circumstances: What shall I do if I missed the assignment submission deadline?
Deadlines for submission of assignments must not be missed. No extension of deadlines are permitted outside the exam weeks. If due to exceptional circumstances, you are unable to meet the deadline, which prevents you from graduating on time, you may request an extension via Mitigating Circumstances Request Form. Supporting evidence will normally be required when applications for extensions are made, such as a medical certificate, doctor’s letter, death certificate, etc. The Exam Board is the only body that can authorise extensions.
Mitigating Circumstances (during standard exam weeks):
- This form should be submitted at least 3 working days before the exam/deadline.
