Question:

Student Account: Who can I contact in case of loss of access to my student account?

(Last edited: Wednesday, 24 June 2020, 8:21 AM)
Answer:

If a student’s account denies access, this can have multiple reasons. Below the 3 most common reasons are highlighted.

  • Password change. Students have to regularly change their password to secure their account.
  • Inactivity for a longer period of time. If a student does not access his school account for a few months, the account will be blocked. The account has to be reset. The Wittenborg Front Desk can do this - send an email to have your account reset.
  • Outstanding invoice tuition fee. If a student has not yet paid the tuition fees, an account will be blocked. After receiving the payment, the account will be reactivated.

For further information ask the Front Desk for support. This can be done either via email to frontdesk@wittenborg.eu or helpdesk@wittenborg.eu or by going to the Front Desk in person.

Question:

Student Card: I am a new student and wish to obtain a new student card.

(Last edited: Wednesday, 24 June 2020, 8:44 AM)
Answer:

Student Card

A student card is an identification card to show that someone is enrolled as a student of Wittenborg. A student card also allows students to use the elevator in the Aventus building and to access the rooms downstairs in the Aventus building.

Note: 

Some companies give discounts to students if they can show their student ID.

How to obtain a student card

The Front Office will apply for student cards for new students.

Once you have taken all the steps on the new student checklist, go to the Front Desk to collect the pick-up slip. With this pick-up slip, you can go to the central reception area of Aventus to have your student card made immediately.

Question:

Student Housing in Apeldoorn: What types of housing options can I choose from in the university housing in Apeldoorn?

(Last edited: Wednesday, 24 June 2020, 8:29 AM)
Answer:

Wittenborg offers accommodation in a number of different types and places, all enjoying close proximity to the university:

  • Wittenborg offers shared apartments: 3-5 students share an apartment or house
  • Wittenborg offers campus accommodation: students have their own room within a campus complex, sharing kitchen and bathroom facilities

Dutch or other EU-national students are encouraged to find their own accommodation; however, they can opt for Wittenborg’s own accommodation if available.

If you are a non-EU, ‘package-fee’-paying student who needs Wittenborg to arrange your study visa to be able to join us in Apeldoorn, part of your package fee is the first 4 months* of your accommodation fee, plus administration fee for new-arrival students.

You will be allocated a room in either an apartment or a house sharing a common area and all facilities, such as a bathroom, toilet, kitchen, etc., with other students, both male and female.

After the first 4 months* you are free to move out of Wittenborg accommodation and move into other housing of your choice.
