However, to receive the keys of your room at the start of the contract, your application for the study program has to be complete on 16 August 2023 latest. This means that:
If your application is not complete by 16 August 2023, we will cancel your rental contract.

You might be entitled to housing allowance and cancellation of taxes (this depends on your income and your rental costs); this can be requested through the Dutch tax office. Please note that you need to pay your complete rent to DUWO first and that the Tax Office will decide if they will award you the allowance each year. For more information, check DUWO.nl or contact the International Office.
