We know how important it is for our students to find a home away from home, so from Spring 2019, our newly recruited International Housing Officer will be in post to answer your questions.
KdG does not offer student accommodation but Antwerp boasts a large student population, so there are many options available.
We recommend that our degree students start looking as soon as they receive their acceptance or conditional acceptance email. Exchange students should begin their search once their application is approved and confirmed.
You may find it useful to visit Kotweb. It offers a wide selection of student accommodation in and around the city.
It has a useful labelling system that informs tenants whether a particular room meets all Flemish legislation and fire safety standards.
Welcome in Belgium, EU-citizens & Non-EU-citizens!
Study in Antwerp. That’s great, but…
Non-EU citizens are obliged to register at the immigration office for a residence permit. Please send the required documents below to firstname.lastname@example.org.
EU citizens are NOT obliged to register at the immigration office for a residence permit, unless:
- You are here for one full academic year or longer
- You have personal reasons (e.g. if you want to work, open a bank account)
Before your return - leaving Belgium
At the end of their stay students who entered a file at the immigration office will have to fill out the document ‘change of domicile’ and send it back before leaving Belgium to email@example.com.
All international exchange students (one or two semesters), including students within the Erasmus Belgica programme, need to have their health insurance covering illness and accidents, including accidents during study and third-party liability insurance arranged before arrival. The validity of the insurances must cover the whole stay. During internship all international students (one or two semesters) are insured by an insurance policy taken out by KdG for physical accidents.
International students who follow a whole Bachelor degree programme are insured by an insurance policy taken out by KdG for physical accidents and third party liability during study or internship.
If you are in need of an insurance covering accidents, illness, travel assistance and third party insurance , we can suggest the SIP (Student Insurance Programme).
