This way it seems WUR prefers to house its foreign students a bit like asylum seekers: keeping them away from society, and preventing them from becoming part of the university community they belong to. No visit to the Saturday market in Wageningen, no participation in social and cultural events in Wageningen, no visit to the International Club. Long weekends in Hoenderloo, sharing a bungalow with four fellow-students.
I personally think that this way of housing foreign students does not give them value for money as a student in the WUR community.
But how do the foreign students at Hoenderloo see their housing conditions and social life themselves? Maybe they are very satisfied, and my sympathy is misplaced.
Let them speak up in Resource – or might this be a subject for a student research project?
