Regular Start appointment

  • During the regular Start appointment, you will be able to complete your enrolment and collect your student card. However, housing corporations De Key and DUWO, City Hall and the IND (immigration department) will not be present. Therefore you will not be able to collect the key for you housing, register with the municipality or collect your residence permit card during this appointment.
