If you want to enjoy your student life to the fullest, it is recommended that you find a room in Nijmegen. This is very practical as well.
The best way to go is to register at the SSH&, Nijmegens student housing corporation. This organisation will make sure you get a cheap room relatively quickly.
If the SSH& cannot help you soon enough, there are other options. We sincerely advise you to register for free at these commercial dormitories, such as kamernet.nl, kamer.nl, and easykamer.nl. The sooner you find a room, the better.
