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.
Registering in Utrecht or Rotterdam
If you recently arrived in the Netherlands and have no place to sleep with friends or family, the Dutch government will make sure you get a place in a reception centre. Currently, there are two major transit locations in the Netherlands. From a transit location you will be assisted with finding a reception centre, food and medical care.
Please go to one of the locations below for a referral to a reception centre that has space:
Rotterdam, Max Eeuwelaan 1 (open all week from 10:00 and 18:00 for immediate reception, registration and referral to another reception centre)
Utrecht, Jaarbeurs, Hall 5 (open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week)
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.
