Here you will have the opportunity to make Dutch friends, and a first-hand introduction to Dutch culture and the Dutch language. When reserving a room on such a floor, you will be expected to comply with existing house rules. Although many Dutch students speak English well, the main language on these mixed floors will be Dutch. If you would like to live with Dutch students on one floor, please contact the international office of your AUAS faculty.

Resident Assistants (RA’s) are Dutch students who live with the international students in a number of buildings. They can help with all kinds of questions about the building, your room or your housemates. Also, the RA’s organise drinks and activities.
