It is worth to buy a railway discount card which costs 100 guilders, but if you want to travel you will save huge amounts of money (gives you 40% of reduction)

Personal comments
Pretty good arranged, but there were two drawbacks: 1. I had to sign my contract with company WonenMiddenBrabant, which provides accommodation for foreign students on behalf of the university prior to see the room I was renting. They also arrange rooms for students outside the campus, so if you are not lucky, you will have to stay all period away from the campus. 2. The costs were much higher than for Dutch students for the same or even slightly worse type of accommodation, in my opinion too high. But overall it was pretty OK.
