Registration student

Are you a student at Maastricht University (UM) or Zuyd University of Applied Sciences and are you coming from abroad to live in Maastricht? Then register with the municipality so that you will also receive a Burgerservicenummer (BSN). 

Are you going to live here for more than 4 months? Then you have to register with the municipality. 

BSN number

If you register (online), you will receive information as soon as possible to pick up your BSN number. This number gives you access to all kinds of government services. Registration with the municipality is mandatory if you are going to live in the Netherlands for at least four months. Apply for a residence permit first if you have a non-European nationality. 

Check your mailbox

After receiving your form, we will send you an e-mail with further information within a few weeks. So keep a close eye on your mailbox so you know when you can collect your BSN. This is necessary in order to be registered!

We kindly request you not to call the municipality to check the status of your registration. It can take several weeks for your request for registration to be processed. Sending in a new form will only delay it. 

Change of address

Are you already enrolled in another place in the Netherlands and are you coming to Maastricht for your studies? If so, let us know online when you will be moving.
