Introducing Fontys University of Applied Sciences: Where Knowledge Flows
A Name with Meaning: On September 1, 1996, our institution adopted the name Fontys University of Applied Sciences. This name draws inspiration from the Latin word “fons,” translating to “source.” At Fontys, we’re not just a university; we’re a wellspring of knowledge, nourishing students’ thirst for learning.
Unification of Excellence: Fontys is the result of a collaboration among several esteemed Dutch Higher Education Institutes nestled in the scenic south of the Netherlands. This alliance unites rich educational legacies that date back to the early 1900s.
Ancestral Pedagogy: Our roots run deep. Some of the institutes that make up Fontys have a profound educational history that spans generations. This legacy empowers us to offer education that’s rooted in tradition yet attuned to modern demands.

Like most cities in the Netherlands, Eindhoven has a shortage of affordable student accommodation. This means that finding accommodation in Eindhoven can be difficult and time-consuming. It is very common to find accommodation through Facebook groups for rooms in Eindhoven and Tilburg. Alternatively, if you are a new (first-year) student, Fontys International Office can help with finding accommodation for one year. After that year arranging accommodation is your own responsibility.
