Student Life | Testimonials
  • The hostel is the best place to meet students from other collages and acadamies. Our house mother, tannie Laura, is the best mother figure you could ask for when you are away from home. I am very happy with where the hostel is located as it is only 5min away from Eikestad Mall and within walking distance from campus. The security provided by the hostel is great.

  • Huis Nassau has provided me with 3 years of accommodation for the duration of my undergraduate degree. There are night-shift security guards throughout the week and full-time security guards on the weekend that makes the hostel a safe place. Single rooms within the hostel are relatively spacious and students are also provided with a recreational activity room.

  • I’m an international student that has been living at Armentum for the past 3 years. I have enjoyed living here primarily because of the effective Wifi. Because I am a student I need consistent and effective Wifi 24/7 at an affordable price which is provided for me here. I love how intimate the rooms are because I appreciate my space. It also has everything I need like my desk which I worked on throughout the whole of lockdown since I could not go home. Furthermore, it is a safe environment for all individuals. All the other students are really accommodating. Your space is your sacred space and no one interferes with it. I would never change and move elsewhere! This is the perfect place for me that gives me everything I need.

  • I really like staying in 17 on Cluver. I love the unit/ the outside space/ the security and location. This residence is very convenient for me and when I moved in at the beginning of the year, I definitely couldn’t imagine a better home for myself for the next three years.
