It is not always easy for international students to find accommodation in the Netherlands. Therefore, Fontys Venlo University of Applied Sciences offers a service to provide students with assistance in securing suitable accommodation (i.e. a student room) for the first period of their studies at Fontys.

In general

Although Fontys does not have its own campus dorms, it has established cooperations with a number of different accommodations agencies and landlords (further on this website referred to as housing agency). Through such cooperations, Fontys can provide students with guidance in finding accommodation for a semester or academic year at Fontys. The range of available accommodation is  varied, but all satisfy specific standards and are located within a short distance from the campus.

How to apply for accommodation

Non fee paying students: application for your exchange semester happens through an online programme called Mobility Online. Once you have been accepted for your chosen programme, you will receive an acceptance letter through Mobility Online. In this acceptance letter you will find a lilnk to the accommodation form.

Fee paying students: an accommodation form has been / will be sent to you via e-mail.

Please note: if you filled in a Fontys accommodation form you are obliged to accept the room offered by Fontys.
