How to rent from Vestide when you are an international student? If you want to rent an accommodation from Vestide through your educational institution, it is important to know in advance which steps are involved during the rental process.
  1. 1

    Receiving account

    You apply at your educational institution, through your faculty, saying that you want to be considered for furnished accommodation.

    The educational institution maintains a waiting list and, when a place becomes available, they create an account for you. With that account you can book your accommodation.

    Both Fontys and TU/e arranged to have a few furnished rooms and studios reserved for newly arriving international students. These are situated in the buildings listed in this page only. This does not apply for our new buildings on TU/e campus.
