Would you like to live close to the University surrounded by your fellow students? And do you need sports fields and a supermarket nearby? Would you also want all kinds of events and parties to be organised for you? Then you have to be on the campus of the University of Twente! Via Roomspot you get 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. If 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-optation. This means that the current residents of a residential group will decide for themselves who will be the new housemate. It is therefore quite normal that you have to go to an interview/‘hospiteeravond’ 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 where the green environment and urban services have grown together organically. 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 up here. The Twente region has more successful start-ups and progressive entrepreneurs than any other region in the Netherlands.
