Other Expenses

There are a number of other expenses that you should be aware of before coming to Maastricht. For example, you should make sure that you have enough money to pay for your textbooks and materials for university as these will not be provided by the university. Other things to think about are funds for public transport and unseen costs such as emergency repairs to your bike or your house. There are also a number of monthly bills and related costs associated with housing that you should be aware of. Overall, it is sensible to overestimate the expected expenses that you will have to pay. It is also wise to have an emergency fund that can support you in the case of unexpected expenses.
