Short waiting list

As expected, first-year students in Wageningen are having few problems finding a room to rent on time. The waiting list at the student accommodation office SSHW is short and shrinking fast. Vice-director Jan Harkema cannot give precise figures, but says that he expects the waiting list to have disappeared by November. The people working at the Kamerbalie (Rooms Desk) at the WSO have not noticed any problems either. Next year there is likely to be more pressure on student accommodation in Wageningen, as the students from Larenstein come to Wageningen, starting in September 2006. Nevertheless Harkema expects to have been able to house all students before February. / JH
