    Yeh same, I'll hopefully apply this week - looks great! Ugh it's pretty annoying because the uni pretty much said they couldn't find accommodation for me because there have been so many applicants! so I'm trying to find some on my own! How about you?

    Really? I just applied for housing via the university today, I didn't realise the deadline was tomorrow! Did you pay the registration fee? Surely they must be able to provide something 😬 I tried finding some myself too but it ended up being sooo complicated 🙄

    Haha, I applied to the uni one day before the deadline:') yes I paid the registration fee, but I'm pretty sure it's refundable if they aren't able to provide housing for you..hopefully! Well I'm really hoping they'll find me something, I'll literally take anything aha!! Yeh it's soo complicated, especially when you're not Dutch yourself:/ whereabouts are you from if you don't mind me asking?

    Yeah I do! It definitely needs practice though, but I'm hoping that it will make it easier to get a part time job on the side

    Oh cool, whereabouts in Germany do you live? yeah you're right, but there are a few words here and there that are similar, so hopefully it won't be too much of a struggle!
