    Hi Paula,

    My name is Vitória and I will study Environmental Sciences at WUR from September 5th.
    I live in Sao Paulo, Brazil, and I will just be able to arrive in Wageningen on August 18th, for the AID week.
    I am trying to find a room for rent in all the suggested sites and Facebook groups, but still have not got any positive answer yet.
    Do you have any suggestion?

    Tks a lot.

      Dear Vitoria,

      Thank you for your message. I can imagine you are already registered in so I suggest checking for new offers every day. On, offers for new rooms appear at 12.00. You should strive to apply for two rooms every single day. At this moment, you shouldn’t be too picky with the rooms since the housing shortage is a problem in the whole of the Netherlands. Once you are in Wageningen, you can look for an option that suits your preferences best. Also, you should join the Facebook group “Wageningen Student Plaza” and “Wageningen Student Housing” to check for private housing options. Good luck in your search!
