I am a Dutch student. Can I come live at Nano?

This means that all rooms are furnished. You’re not allowed to make changes to a room. Additionally, removing or replacing the furniture is not allowed. Supplementing the furniture provided, with furniture of your own, is allowed, however!

Removing or replacing the furniture is not allowed. You may, however, supplement the furniture provided with some of your own.

We always count one shower per 8 people and one toilet per 5.

Where is Nano located and how far is Nano from Wageningen University & Research?

Nano is located on university grounds De Dreijen at Dreijenplein 4. If you have class there, it’s just a couple of minutes from your room!

The WUR main campus is 3,2 kilometers away; about 10 minutes by bike. If you want to take public transportation, a bus stop (Diedenweg) is about a five minute walk away. From there, the main campus is a 20-minute bus ride. The main mode of transportation for all students in Wageningen is by bike, however!

How is internet organized at Nano?

Each room at Nano has its own router. This router is also WiFi capable, which means you can enjoy wireless internet. If you share your room with one or more people, you also share one router.

The costs of using the internet are included in the service costs.

How long do contracts run for at Nano?

The cancellation period is 1 month, from the first of the month.

If you cancel, you’re canceling to the 1st of the next month. For example, if you cancel your contract on June 14th, your contract runs until August 1st. However, if you cancel July 1st, then your contract runs until September 1st.

What is covered by the service fees that I will pay with my monthly rent?

Included in these fees are, among other things:

  • Use of laundry machines – one per 10 residents
  • Internet – each room is equipped with a WiFi router
  • Utilities for shared spaces
  • Use of refrigerators & stoves in the shared kitchen/living room
  • Utilities for your room, including heating, water & electricity

These fees are paid in advance each month. Around June each year, the fees paid will be compared to the actual use, and any difference will be recovered from, or repaid to, the residents.

Can I get rent subsidy for a room at Nano?

No, you cannot get subsidies for rent at Nano. This is because you share facilities with others and, because of that, the rooms not marked as independent residences.

What is the address I can use to register with the municipality, now that I have signed my lease agreement?

Please only use the first half of your address (without the room number) to register with the municipality.

For example, if your address is Dreijenplein 10A 45, then you can register with the municipality under the address Dreijenplein 10A.
