How to change your address
Your residential address is used to determine which tuition fee you need to pay, so it is important that you keep this address up to date. You can check your residential address via the My UM portal > Personal Data.
Depending on where you are moving to, there are different procedures for changing this address:
- Is your new address within the residence area (Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg, North Rhine-Westphalia, Lower Saxony or Bremen)?
Please email your proof of residence from the city council (dated no earlier than 1 January 2012) to firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Is your new address outside the residence area?
Please email your new address from your UM email account to email@example.com.
- Are you moving to another address within the Netherlands?
Please register with your new city council. They will send your new address to DUO, and UM will automatically receive the new details via Studielink.
NB: You can find out more about the residence requirement with respect to the amount of your tuition fees on the tuition fees webpages. In addition to the residence requirement, it is important that you have EU citizenship and that this is your first study programme. To find out more about the criteria used to determine your tuition fees, please visit the tuition fees webpage.
Other important addresses
When you enrol at the university, you need to provide us with several other addresses as well. These do not affect the amount of your tuition fees, but do need to be kept up to date.
You can view and change these addresses via the My UM portal under ‘Personal Data’. These addresses are as follows:
- Correspondence address
Official documents, such as your proof of enrolment, are sent to your residential address.
NB: You also need to change your correspondence address in Studielink and inform DUO of the new address.
- Emergency address
- Billing address
- Parental address
- Standard address
This is the address you first used to register with Studielink. This address cannot be changed.
