Options for spending the night in Enschede

1. lodge on campus

The campus of the University of Twente offers accommodation in 7 lodges, located near the sports facilities. Each lodge has room for 10-15 students. You will share a lodge with a group of students from your year. We will keep male and female seperate in the lodges. You will need to bring your own towel and bedding linen (sleeping bag/coverlet, pillowcase and fitted sheet). We offer you the option to rent bedding linen for an additional price of €8 p.p.p.n. The heating in the cabins is provided only to keep the cabins frost-free in the winter.

All bathroom facilities are housed in a separate building about 25 meters from the lodges. There are separate cubicles for ladies and gentlemen. There is a common room ('The Stall') next to the lodges where you can spend your evenings or have breakfast in the mornings. You have to arrange your own breakfast. There's a supermarket nearby. In the common room is a refrigerator for shared use, but there are no other kitchen facilities available. It takes approximately 10 minutes to walk from the lodges to campus building De Horst, where most of your lectures will be held.

  • Price per night: €10,00 (no cash, only bank card) you pay per night directly to the university
  • Optional: rent bedding linen for an additional €8,00 per night

We have reserved several double and triple comfort rooms. You can also have breakfast and/or dinner at the hotel. From the U Parkhotel it takes approximately 10 minutes to walk to campus building De Horst, where most of your lectures will be held.

There are various scheduled bus services that connect the buildings on campus with each other. We have reserved double and triple rooms at Fletcher Hotel De Broeierd.

4. Other options: arrange your own stay

Of course you are free to make your own arrangements for overnight stays. You can, for example, make your own reservations for single-rooms at the hotels mentioned above, book an AirBnB in the city or spend the night with family or friends. This means the University will not book an overnight stay for you.
