Room & Board
Campus life is an essential part of University College’s philosophy. As a student, therefore, you live on campus for the duration of the three year program. Students come from diverse backgrounds, and living together provides unique opportunities to learn from each other's experiences. Students are encouraged to take part in a wide array of on-campus organizations, special interest committees and contests.
UCU has multiple residence halls. Each hall is divided into different units. Between 6 and 12 students live in a unit, in which they have a private room and share a living-room, kitchenette and one or more bathrooms. The units are a mix of different genders, ages, and nationalities. Rooms vary in size between 12 and 20 m² and are comfortably furnished with at least a bed, a desk and a wardrobe. Most rooms are single, although some double rooms are available. While smoking is prohibited in all main campus buildings, students can express a preference for a smoking or non-smoking unit. Students are encouraged to eat in Dining Hall but kitchenettes are fitted with basic cooking appliances. Bathrooms are fitted with a shower, a toilet and a wash basin.
Students live on campus from the end of August until the end of June. During the months of July and August it is not possible to live on campus.
Students go to Dining Hall for their lunches and dinners. On weekdays, there is lunch in the afternoon and dinner in the evening. On Saturdays, there is only brunch, but a hot meal is offered as well as bread. On Sundays there is a traditional brunch, and dinner in the evening.
Vegetarian options are always on the menu, and most dietary requirements can be catered for.
Students will get € 750,- per semester in Dining Hall credit and items will be charged separately, making a small lunch cheaper than a big lunch. Students who have run out of credit can pay with cash or debit card.
