  • Therefore, THUAS cooperates with accommodation providers who offer student rooms to our first year incoming international students. With this service, THUAS can assist approximately 50% of the incoming students. For students starting in September 2020, T HUAS has a quota of around 650 rooms. The rooms that are offered are both self-contained as shared-facilities and are fully furnished.

The library catalogue searches the following resources: books (40,000), journals (200), CDs and DVDs and a subset of the e-books (100,000) and e-journals (20,000). The shelf marks and availability are shown.

Medical services

You are required by law to have adequate Health Insurance during your stay in the Netherlands. Therefore, it is essential to make sure you are properly insured during your entire stay in the Netherlands and this is your own responsibility. The Health Insurance coverage that is best suited to you depends on factors that include your nationality, age, nature of residence, and whether you have a job.
