The maximum basic rent for tenants younger than 23 is €425.20. If you are older than 23, the maximum basic rent is currently €808.06. If your rent is below these limits, you can apply for housing benefit. Click here to get started:

iDeal payment method:
The easiest and safest payment method to pay the rent is iDeal. You can use it only if you have a Dutch bank account.
When you make a bank transfer, you must use a reference number (RFXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX). Please include this number on your bank transfer, without any additional information such as your name after it. If you put your name or apartment number after the reference number, our financial system will not be able to match your payment. If you include the correct rental amount, the payment recipient (Student Stay) and the correct reference number, everything will work out. :)
If you do not have a bank account within the Single Euro Payments Area (SEPA), please use the credit card option. Make sure that you enter all the correct data such as the payment recipient and the correct rental price. Then it will work!
Your Post delivery
During your stay it is possible to have things delivered to your home. Using the intercom in your room, you can give the delivery people access to your entrance. After you have ordered something from a company, you will receive a time and date when the delivery will take place. So it is important that you are present at the specified time. Unfortunately, it is not possible to have packages delivered to our office.

It may happen that you experience a power failure which means you have no electricity in your room, apartment or kitchen anymore.
You can follow some steps here before contacting our office:
Please look at the electricity box above your entrance door and look if some fuses have popped out.
Unplug all plugs from the outlets, such as the cell phone charging cord, microwave oven and so on. In particular, please unplug the electric kettle.
In case a couple of fuses had popped out, push them back up and hold them up briefly
Heating and Ventilation
All campus accommodation has underfloor heating with the latest technology. The heating in all accommodations goes to a maximum of 23 degrees. You can reduce the heating at any time. If the display indicates that the battery needs to be changed, please come to our office to pick up new batteries.
It may happen that the heating sometimes shows a little less than 23 degrees. Be sure to close the small vent above your windows and close the windows if you are too cold.
Ventilation is always on in buildings A, B, and C on campus. You will have a ventilation point in your bathroom, on the kitchen ceiling as well as on the cooking hood. If you don't hear air noise from the range hood, it is still working. It is just very quiet. In buildings D and E ventilation is digitally adjustable. In the buildings Kanaalstraat and Stationsweg the ventilation is also automatic.
In case you made only a half year contract and you want to stay another semester, do not forget to extend in your online profile under "my contract". The deadline to extend it is the 30th of March for the winter semester and the 31st of October for the summer semester.
