When can I book accommodation?

Bachelor, Master, Exchange students
Are you a UU exchange or degree student starting in September 2018?  It is not yet possible to register for this period yet. You can register for housing for the next academic year later in May. The exact starting date will be published here. PLEASE NOTE: Do not register for another semester, do not register as another resident type and don’t register with another school. This will delay your housing registration and will decrease your chances of successfully booking accommodation.

PhD, staff & guests
PhD, staff & guests of UU can register 4 months before the desired start of the rental period.

For more information on finding accommodation for UU students, we refer you to the website of Utrecht University.
