If you have fled from Ukraine, the municipality must arrange housing for you until you can rent accommodation yourself. You can also live temporarily with a host family.

Upon arrival in the Netherlands, you must register in Utrecht

Are you new to the Netherlands? Then the Dutch government will make sure you are taken care of. To receive a place in a reception centre, you must go to an registration location. You can currently apply at one location:

  • Utrecht, Jaarbeurs, Hall 5 Open 24 hours a day all week. This is where you report for food, medical care and a referral to a reception location where there is space.

The registration centres below are currently full. You can no longer be accommodated here.

  • Eindhoven, Castiliëlaan

  • Amsterdam, Centraal Station

  • Rotterdam, Max Euwelaan

Please bear in mind that there is no guarantee that you will be accommodated within your preferred municipality. For example, because there are no reception centres available within that municipality.

If you can stay with friends or relatives, you can report to the municipality in which they live.
