Waiting time


You start building up waiting time from the day your registration is paid via iDEAL or credit card. If you pay the registration fee a few days later then that will automatically become your registration date.

Accommodation is allocated by Studentenwoningweb on the basis of waiting time and/or any applicable priority scheme. The waiting time for a particular accommodation depends on its popularity and location.
If you accept student accommodation then you will remain registered with Studentenwoningweb, so you will continue to accumulate waiting time and increase your chance of being offered better accommodation. In this fashion you can move up the student housing ladder.


Frequently asked questions

Why do I not see the chance of success anymore in the housing advertisements?

The chance of success was always shown next to the accommodation offers in order to give students an idea about their chances of finding a suitable student accommodation.

The chance of success compares your accumulated waiting time and potential priority arrangements to those of all the other students who have been registered. The chance of success proved to be inaccurate, because students are not deregistered after accepting an accommodation. As such, the system also took into account the waiting time of students who had been registered for a number of years, but who were no longer actively looking for an accommodation.

For this reason we have decided to remove the chance of success next to the accommodation advertisements. Your preliminary position, which remains visible, is a better indication of whether or not you are eligible for a particular accommodation.

What is the student housing ladder?

As a student you can move up the student housing ladder. This entails that, for example, as a first-year student you may start off in a guest house, then move into a room in a student flat and then finally move into self-contained accommodation as a senior student. Accepting student accommodation will not affect your registration with Studentenwoningweb. In this manner you can continue to accumulate waiting time for better, larger or self-contained student accommodation.
