All students who live more than 130 kilometres from Wageningen campus as the crow flies will be guaranteed a room from now on. Student accommodation provider Idealis will keep rooms for newcomers that are vacated between May and September or between November and February. If this turns out not to be enough, the organization will create 150 extra rooms for peak periods.

The new agreements are in a revised contract for housing international students that Wageningen University and Idealis recently concluded. International students were already guaranteed a room in the existing contract but that guarantee is now being extended to all students who come from far away. Idealis will also be in charge of allocating 565 rooms in Earth House, Fire House and Water House on the Haarweg, Churchill House and the Beringhem premises.
