Rules & Regulations for Residents

In this part of our housing section we aim to provide you with a general overview of your rights and obligations as a resident of the Gemeente Maastricht. This means that the following rules apply to all of us living & studying in this pretty little city, including rights and limitations that go along with being a resident. Further, we are providing you with a handful of tips regarding personal and material safety.

There are two important things you should know regarding safety. The first are the basic laws applicable to you as a resident. You should know these so that you do not break any law unwillingly just because you were unaware of it. The second is how to keep yourself and your belongings secure, and how to contact the police should you or someone you know become a victim of crime. Checkout this comprehensive document of rules and advice provided by the police in Maastricht.
