How do I increase my chances of booking XIOR accommodation?
The accommodation is rented out on a first come, first served basis. Once booking opens on 21 May 2019 9.00 AM CEST you are advised not to postpone this to a later time. Still, even if you keep to the booking date and time, there is a chance that you will not be able to book. Take this in mind and also explore alternative options beforehand.
Can I rent XIOR accommodation for longer or shorter?
This is not possible. The accommodation via Xior is only available for a fixed rental period of 12 months and only for the first year of studies. If you are looking for accommodation for a shorter time frame, for example because you are planning to conduct research or an internship abroad, it is not possible to book this accommodation.
Does Xior offer accommodation to couples or families?
No, the rooms and studios via Xior are not suitable for couples, children or families.
Am I allowed to bring my pet?
The Reserved Accommodation Programme does not offer accommodation that is suitable for pets.
What if I am unable to book via the Reserved Accommodation Programme?
Because the number of reserved accommodations is limited, most students have to search for housing on their own. This can be difficult and time-consuming but the right preparation can increase your chances. At Utrecht University we aim to help and inform you best we can.
