If you will be residing in the Netherlands for your studies you will need to register at the municipality as an inhabitant of the Netherlands.

During the Welcome Days the International Office will make sure arrangements are made so you can do so. Please make sure you bring along the required documents mentioned below from your home country. Your birth certificate must be legalized first, for use in the Netherlands. Do you want to know how to legalize your foreign document? Please, check the website of Netherlands and you.

Registration at the municipality

Documents you need

  • Your valid passport/ID card

  • A signed tenancy agreement (if you don’t have it than you should bring proof of allowance of registration and habitation of the property owner)

  • A legalized and translated (international) birth certificate (with apostille or legalization stamp). The translation needs to be carried out and stamped by a sworn translator. When the original document is clearly readable in English, French or German a translation is not needed. 

  • The pre-registration form of the municipality of 's-Hertogenbosch if you are going to live in ‘s-Hertogenbosch or Rosmalen (already filled in by yourself). You can get this form from the International Office.

Only for non-EU students:

  • approval of Dutch Immigration (you will receive it during the Welcome Days)
