STUDENT HOUSING

As our campus is constantly growing, we have established a variety of new student accommodations in Meppel. To give you the best possible overview of our five main housing options we have visited some of our students who are currently living in either of them:

Meet Joelle at Weerdstraat (Windmill) 

What do you enjoy about your housing community the most?

I love the housing community I live in. We all get along really well, we keep the house clean, we organise parties once in a while and if we have problems, we have a meeting to sort everything out.

 

What is your favourite spot in the house?

My favourite spot in the house is the outside picknick bench. When it is nice weather we sit in the sun, we listen to music and sometimes eat pizza together or organise pancake nights. There is always a beautiful sunset and you can see the windmill.

 

How do you organize the communal living?

Once a week we have a cleaning lady that comes to clean the common areas. We also have a cleaning schedule where two students a week make sure that the kitchen is clean. We have a list for stuff that needs to be bought for the house like (toilet paper, dish soap etc) and when each student buys something they write it on there. We barely have problems with noises but if we do, we gently ask in our WhatsApp group chat to lower the noise.

 

Meet Marina in Nijeveen 

What is your favourite spot in the house?

My room, here is where all my friends and I gathered at least once a day to talk and have fun or the common room where we sometimes watch movies on the big screen.

 

How do you organise the communal living?

Cooking is not a problem as everyone in this house has their own kitchen (except ovens and microwave which are in the common living room) and usually because of traditions on times for dinner we eat differently. Other common things are discussed on our WhatsApp chat or eventually we do house meetings. We also have a cleaning schedule.

 

What is your favourite memory with your house mates?

When we all just moved in and it was still summer and we could spend hours outside in our garden under the sun playing cards, eating and drinking.

Meet Andreas in Kolderveen

What do you enjoy about your housing community the most?

Even though we are a rather big housing, each resident possesses a valuable and respected position. We support each other no matter what situation someone finds themselves in.  

 

What is your favourite spot in the house?

The “Whiskey Area” is a room surrounded by glass walls and the perfect spot to enjoy a book or a deep talk with one of your friends. In summer, we gather on the terrace in front of the room to have many bonfires. 

 

How do you organize the communal living?

We have weekly house meetings where everyone shares concerns regarding the noises or conditions of the house. Additionally, we established a cleaning schedule right in the beginning to create cleaning groups addressed to certain areas that change weekly. 

 

What is your favourite memory with your house mates?

Our very first house party where students from the entire ITEps community came over for a drink and dance. 

 

Meet Marieke at Schoolstraat 

What do you enjoy about your housing community the most?

We are all very friendly to each other and we can talk friendly about a problem and how to solve it.

 

What is your favourite spot in the house?

My room, it is very cozy and I like spending time with friends there.

 

How do you organise the communal living?

We do have rules. Things like not making too much noise after 11, cleaning up your own pots and pans and sticking to the cleaning schedule. Sometimes things are not done properly, but the most important thing is too communicate about it.

 

What is your favourite memory with your house mates?

Our Secret Santa's and the BBQs outside in the summer. That is so much fun!
