Hostel 'StayOkay' offers a discount

If you arrive in Utrecht before the start of your rental agreement, you may need to spend a few nights, or longer, in a hostel or hotel. The 'Stay Okay' hostel offers a 10% discount to Utrecht University students for its locations Utrecht city center, Utrecht-Bunnik and Soest. Make your reservations well in advance because they are usually fully booked at the start of the semester.  For more information, check their flyer. Note that this discount code is also valid for friends and family who come to visit.

If you need a place to stay for a week or longer, then check out the interesting weekly rates of the Stay Okay Utrecht long stay programme, valid for their Utrecht city center hostel.
