Finding somewhere to live

If you come to study at Windesheim, either for an exchange programme or a bachelor programme, you'll need somewhere to live.

Windesheim cooperates with a national housing agency in Zwolle called SSH (Stichting Studentenhuisvesting). SSH offers furnished student rooms in Zwolle to exchange students. They also offer rooms to students following the English bachelor programmes, but be aware that there is a waiting list. When you register at SSH you need to pay a small registration fee.


Laura Smit: 'It is great to live together at the student residence'

‘It is great to live together because it encourages you to balance your life – sometimes you need to just have fun and sometimes you need to study hard – with your fellow students close you can encourage each other to do both.’ Sebastian Borchers, second year student from Germany

‘Living together is great – it is easy to get together for schoolwork and you always have the option of hanging out together. With your own room it is also nice to be able to close your door and have the privacy and quiet you sometimes need.’ Angela Gonzalez Pedrero, third year student from Spain

‘The room has a wonderful view of the city of Zwolle. I like that we have a common kitchen and our own bathroom. The walls are quite thick so I have never had a problem being disturbed by a neighbour.’
