Who can help me?

When you are going to be a student it is hard to find a room. Often you live far away from Wageningen which means you cannot come over easily to search for a room. In that case it is very handy to have a contact in Wageningen, who will keep an eye out for you. Ask your friends if they know anybody who already studies in Wageningen. Tell everybody that you are looking for a room in Wageningen, the more people know, the better!


Mediation Agencies

There is one mediation agency in Wageningen, namely the Student Organisation of Wageningen housing office (WSO-Kamerbalie). This Student Organisation mediates between students and other young people on the one hand, and on the other hand individuals who have a room for rent. This mediation is free of charge.
