  • Accommodation through Fontys

    Accommodation through Fontys

    Fontys works together with two rental agencies as well as a number of private landlords for accommodating Fontys students. Students, who apply for accommodation through Fontys, will either be allocated into one of the student dormitories or into a room by a private landlord. 

    Each student room meets the following requirements:

    • Furnished; bed, desk, chair, wardrobe, curtains (bed sheets and towels not included)
    • Within a max. 20 min. bicycle ride to the Fontys Venlo campus
    • The room has at least 10 m²
    • Shared kitchen, bathroom and laundry room
    • Internet, energy and water (included in rental fee)

    The rental costs of accommodation through Fontys are €350 – €425 a month.

    How to apply

    1. Fill in the accommodation form digitally (note the application deadline marked on the accomodation form).
    2. Complete the enrolment requirements before applying.

    Signing and handing in the accommodation form constitutes a binding agreement to accept the room that is allocated to you. Once the rooms have been allocated, it is no longer possible to withdraw your application for a room and you will be legally obligated to pay the rental fees for the full rental period stated on the form.

    If you live in a radius closer than 200km from Venlo you will be placed on a waiting list on a first come, first served basis. If there are still rooms available after students who live further away have applied you will be granted a room. 

    Student rooms are only allocated to students who have completed the enrolment requirements by June 15th, 2018. Accommodation forms handed in after this date will be placed on our waiting list and then there will be no guarantees.
