Registration at city hall

As an Avans student, you may be living in the Netherlands for 4 months or longer without leaving the country. Or you might want to work during your studies. In those cases, you are required to register at the city hall of the town where you are going to live.

You will receive a citizen service number once you have been registered as a new resident.

Making an appointment

Ask the International Office staff how to make a registration appointment upon your arrival. Please do not go to city hall by yourself for this. Making an appointment through Avans will help you avoid any errors and miscommunication. The International Office staff will be happy to assist you.

Deregistration upon leaving the country

When you leave the Netherlands, you must inform city hall about this. If you have been a resident of Breda, you must fill in this form. If you have been a resident of 's-Hertogenbosch, you must fill in this form (only available in Dutch).
