When you arrive in the Netherlands

Catering on campus

As of this year we offer catering on campus again. There's a variety of food that can buy in our canteen and it is of course also possible to get some snacks and/or drinks out of the vending machines on campus or to visit one of the nearby supermarkets.


A buddy is a current Fontys student, who will be in contact with you during a couple of weeks before your departure as well as during your first weeks here and will answer the general questions that you may have about your future student life.
