Special procedure housing

Students can be given priority to receive a VUB dorm room through a special procedure. This is only possible when a VUB room is essential for being able to successfully begin or complete the studies. Proof must be given that not having a VUB room will make your studies impossible. Especially medical and physical limitations or social or psychological reasons can be taken into account. Financial arguments are not considered in this procedure: students in financial need can call upon other support.

How to apply?

To apply for the special procedure you need to go to the Social Service for Students in person and bring along the application form and documents that prove your particular situation. Depending on your situation, you will be referred to the Medical Department, CAW Brussels or an employee of the Study Guidance Centre for external advice.

Application form

When to apply?

  • Before the 1st of May

After this date you can only submit an application if:

  • the situation you are in is due to an incident that occurred after 1 May   
  • the situation you are in requires a VUB room to be able to begin or continue your studies.

You can contact the Social Service for Students for more information about the applications.
