You must make an appointment with your municipality as soon as possible after arriving in the Netherlands. This is compulsory for anyone who wishes to study here, even if you are from the EU. The registration process in Wageningen is very well-arranged. Your educational institution will send you an email explaining the steps you have to go through. To make it easy for you, we’ll explain it once more over here.
For non-EU students of the WUR, the municipality and the WUR organize a moment on campus to register in Wageningen. The university will let you know when and where you’ll have to be.
EU students, can make an appointment using the Registration button below. Please make sure you bring your passport and any other official documents you posses. After these documents are checked you will immediately receive your BSN and once you walk out of the building, you will be ready to continue arranging all services you want.
Why do we work together?
A lot of international students come to Wageningen to study at Wageningen University & Research, Aeres University of applied sciences and Van Hall Larenstein. The municipality of Wageningen and International Student Services are trying to help the integration process of these international students. Clear information is critical to reach this. As we explained in Formalities, signing up in your municipality and getting a Citizen Services Number (BSN in Dutch) is of great importance. BSN is used on all legal documents here in the Netherlands. Having a BSN allows you to do other important things, like opening a Dutch bank account. Above we explain how you can get your BSN in Wageningen; please follow the instructions carefully.
