    Accommodation

    Come back and stay for good this time.

    Need a place to dwell? Check Studentkotweb or Kotspotting (no login/pasw required)  for a wide selection of student accommodation in and around Antwerp: rooms, studios, apartments, detailed info on housing facilities, the lease, garbage collection etc.

    No rant! Just rent. Immoweb offers a wide selection of furnished and non-furnished studios and apartments. You’ll probably pay more, but if you share your place with other students, you might get a good deal. Mind you: some landlords will not rent an apartment for only 3 months.

    Also check the accommodation guide from student house Gate15 for more information.

    KdG Community: publish your request on this Facebook-group! Meet people, swap rooms, fall in love.

    Tip! Start looking for a place to stay as soon as your application has been approved and confirmed by Mobility Online.

    No room? No hassle!

    No room before you come to Antwerp? No worries. Come to Antwerp a week or two before the semester starts and have a look around. There are people who let their rooms: they put a sticker on their window. In the meantime, one of the following youth hostels can put you up for the night.

    • Pulcinella: Boogaardeplein 1, 2000 Antwerpen +32 3 234 03 14
    • Scoutel: Stoomstraat 3, 2018 Antwerpen, + 32 3 26 46 06
    • Alias Youth Hostel, Provinciestraat 256, 2018 Antwerpen, +32 3 230 05 22

    Show me the money!

    • A furnished room: app. € 280/month for a full academic year.
    • Studios are more expensive and cost about € 350/ month or more.

    A surplus might be charged for short rental periods.

    Write it down or make a mental note: the costs for water, electricity and heating are usually not included in the rental price; cooking utensils, bed linen and towels are usually not provided.

    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 international@kdg.be.

    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)

    If that is the case, please send the required documents below to international@kdg.be (exchange) or ibs@kdg.be (IBS).

    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 international@kdg.be.

    Insurance

    All international exchange students (one or two semesters), including students within the Erasmus Belgica program, need to have their health insurance and third-party liability insurance arranged before arrival. The validity of the insurances must cover the whole stay.

    International students who follow a whole Bachelor degree programme are insured by an insurance policy taken out by KdG for personal 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).

    For more information, please contact insurance@kdg.be.
