Practical housing information

When renting an apartment or room in the Netherlands, there are a few important steps to take to safeguard yourself and your belongings.

Registering with the municipality: Firstly, it’s crucial to register with the municipality (gemeente) where you will be residing. This registration ensures that you are officially recognized as a resident, and it is mandatory for all individuals living in the Netherlands. As soon as you are registered by your landlord at your address, you can register at the municipality. This has to be done within the first three months of your arrival.


It’s essential to ensure your personal belongings are protected by insurance. Life is unpredictable, and unfortunate events such as fires or burglaries can happen, even in the safest neighbourhoods. Having insurance gives you peace of mind, knowing that you are financially covered in case of any unexpected mishaps.

Also note that liability insurance is mandatory in the Netherlands. Please inquire with Tilburg University’s immigration office or read here.

Beware of scammers: If an offer seems too good, it’s probably fake. Avoid sending money bank accounts that you don’t trust; it could be a sign of trouble. Stay alert and trust your instincts.
