How do I find my room?
Your search starts at ROOM.nl. There you respond to the offer. If you eventually become a tenant (from point 6 onwards), you will be able to arrange everything via the Idealis website.
You have to register at ROOM.nl
You must register at ROOM.nl, to start building up your waiting time. ROOM.nl is a national platform that publishes student housing on offer from various professional providers, to whom you can apply for rooms. Check out the ROOM rules on their website.
Apply for rooms on offer
You can respond to the housing offers at ROOM.nl. After logging in, you will see the room offers for which you can apply. These are the rooms in the region where you are studying or doing an internship. Simple and convenient.
If you are a first-year student, you can respond to the offers four months in advance of when you start your studies. You cannot have more than five open responses at any one time.
You get an offer if you are first on the waiting list
If, after the advertisement closes, you are the first person on the waiting list for a room, you will receive an offer by email.
You can visit the room
Would you first like to see the room before you definitely accept it? The name of the person you should contact to see the room will be mentioned in the email sent to you when you get an offer. Of course, viewing your room is only possible if the current tenant agrees to this.
Accept your room
Log in at ROOM.nl and accept your room offer. If you are not interested in the room, you should then refuse it.
If you accepted, you will receive an email with an activation link to create an account at www.idealis.nl. You need this account to upload documents and sign your rental agreement.
Upload documents at Idealis.nl
You will be asked to upload several documents on My Idealis. These may include your identity card and proof of enrolment at an educational institution or an employment contract if you are a PhD student.
Signing the tenancy agreement
After your documents have been approved, you can sign the tenancy agreement via My Idealis and pay your first month's rent. Once you have done so, you will receive an email with additional information. In this email you will find details such as where and when you can pick up the room keys, and what you should be aware of when moving into your room.
Other ways to find a room
For a part of our rooms the tenants choose their own co-tenants. Many housing groups look for prospective tenants among their friends or via kamernet.nl, for example, or on the Facebook page Student Plaza Wageningen. You won't find these rooms on ROOM.nl. You have to take action yourself if you want to live here. It is also necessary that you are registered at ROOM.
