Students may register for a room via their website www.vivare.nl - international students (registration opens on October 15, 2013).  Please note that accommodation can only be rented per semester and the full semester price must be paid up front – an initial deposit of 750 euros, followed by the balance on arrival. The deadline for registration is November 15, 2013.  It is very important that you register for your accommodation before the deadline as there is limited student accommodation in Arnhem and HAN is unable to guarantee you a room after the deadline.  Click here for one MSU student's housing suggestions.
