Personalised Assistance Housing 

The Vesalius College Housing Coordinator offers personalized assistance to students in locating and leasing a student flat or a room.

The service includes the placement in housing and personal assistance to help students understand the specific aspects (both culturally and legally) that they may encounter prior arrival or during their stay.

The contract can be reviewed by the Housing Coordinator before signature and eventually a template in English proposed to the landlords for signature with our students.
