Would you like to live close to the University surrounded by your fellow students? And would you like to have sports fields and a supermarket nearby? What about all kinds of events and parties? For all this you have to be on the campus of the University of Twente! Via Roomspot you can search for a nice room in a residential group on the nicest campus in the Netherlands. On campus you never have to travel far for your classes and you live with a friendly group in an affordable and reliable home.
Finding a room
To find a room you can register for free at Roomspot. You will receive an account where you can activate filters. As soon as there is a room that meets your needs, you will receive a notification. When you respond to a room, you will receive the contact details of the current residents. To be eligible for the room, it is important that you send them an email with information about yourself. Based on the emails, they invite a number of candidates for a viewing and interviews.
All rooms on campus are allocated through a process called co-option. This means that the current residents of a group decide who will be the new housemate. It is therefore quite normal that you have to go to an interview (or ‘hospiteeravond’ as it is called in Dutch) a few times before you find a room. It is important that you are yourself, there is always a group home that will suit you perfectly.
Living in Twente
When you live and study in Twente, you enjoy a region with a green environment and urban services. Students thrive here. It is no coincidence that Enschede was voted the best student city in the Netherlands in 2018: cheap housing, pleasant living, many associations, good study. Even after your studies you will still benefit from the network you build here. The Twente region has more successful start-ups and progressive entrepreneurs than any other region in the Netherlands.
