Once an exchange students placement is confirmed, the International Education Division will send students an on-campus accommodation form.

A number of single rooms have been reserved for exchange students in the five student villages on campus. Campus accommodation is limited and is allocated on a first-come first-serve basis.

Booking forms must be accompanied by a 250 Euro booking deposit in order to reserve your accommodation. There are also several off-campus residences available for exchange students.
