Accommodation in Enschede

The University of Twente can arrange accommodation for you on campus in our lodges. If you prefer to stay in a hotel or somewhere else, you need to make your own arrangements. Read more about these options:

  • 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, but due to the COVID-19 measures, we will only accommodate 8 students per lodge.

    You will share a lodge with a group of students from your year. We will keep male and female separate 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 per stay. 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 
    • Optional: rent bedding linen for an additional €8,00 per stay 


  • Hotels on and nearby campus

    There is a hotel on campus (U Parkhotel) and one across campus (Hotel De Broeierd), but due to the COVID-19 measures, we are not able to make agreements with these hotels to accommodate 2 or 3 students per room. Of course, you are free to make your own arrangements for these hotels.

    The Horst building, where you will take your practicals and tutorials, is a ten-minute walk from both hotels.

  • Other options

    Don't want to stay in the lodges or book a hotel on campus? You can, for example, look for an AirBnB in the city or spend the night with family or friends.
