Arrival Fall 2024

Arrival Fall semester 2024: Thursday 15th - Friday 16th August 2024

We look forward to welcoming all new students to University College Utrecht for the start of the Fall semester of 2024/25. To help ensure your arrival goes smoothly, this page contains important information about planning for and after arrival. 

If you need an entry visa to travel to the Netherlands, you will receive more information during the visa application procedure. For more information about entry visa and the residence permit, please visit this UU information page

Planning your arrival

You may arrive on either of the two arrival days, any time between 9 AM and 4 PM, when the UCU Arrival team is there to welcome you and hand you your keys to your new room. On Thursday there is a large university-wide event happening on campus - providing a free lunch to all students - but it means it will be busier on campus that day. A more quiet day for arrival will be Friday 17 August. You will be sent a form to indicate your planned day and approximate time of arrival some time in July. You can also indicate on this form whether you would like to order a bedding package. 

Upon Arrival to Campus

Upon arrival you will receive the keys to your room and mailbox. You will also be able to collect your pre-ordered bedding package and/or buy one on the day. Student association representatives will be there to hand you the introweek programme booklet and help find your room if needed!
