Facebook: I wish to join the Wittenborg Facebook page. What should I do?

(Last edited: Monday, 20 December 2021, 5:14 PM)

We would like to offer our students the opportunity to meet fellow students and staff in an informal way, even before arrival. This is why we suggest joining Wittenborg on Facebook.

Login or create a Facebook account: www.facebook.com. Search 'Wittenborg Students & Staff' on the Facebook website or app. Click 'Join us'. 

After approval, students can receive the latest information on their personal accounts. If you have sent a request to 'Wittenborg Students & Staff' on Facebook and have not received any feedback (approval) for too long (more than 1 week), then you can send an email to frontdesk@wittenborg.eu. 


Family Visa: How can I apply for a family visa?

Unfortunately Wittenborg does not provide assistance in this procedure. Additionally, student housing is accorded only to students who are fully registered at Wittenborg.

Students who wish to bring along their family members can apply for a dependent visa at the IND (Immigratie en Naturalisatiedienst). More information about the conditions and requirements for this visa can be obtained via the IND website at Family | Immigration and Naturalisation Service (IND).

In such a situation, please call the Wittenborg University of Applied Sciences telephone number +31886672688 (weekends: +31613723608) to inform Wittenborg's staff members so that they can take the necessary action. After your call please also send a short e-mail to this address: registrar@wittenborg.eu, mentioning your student number and explaining your situation.  

Please follow the same procedure if you face any difficulties that prevent you from travelling to the airport of your departure point that is caused by airport authorities or airline company staff. 


Food in the Netherlands: Can I buy the food that I am used to while staying in the Netherlands?

Yes, in general everything is available in the markets. There are plenty of Dutch and non-Dutch supermarkets in every area in each city. Dutch supermarkets such as Albert Heijn, Boni, Hoogvlient or Jumbo do carry food from various other cultures such as Italian, Mexican, Chinese, Indonesian, or Asian. Non-Dutch supermarkets such as Turkish, Indian or Asian supermarkets can also be easily found in every city. Just search them via Google map or ask fellow students who have been here in the Netherlands earlier than you.
