Relocation allowance

If you relocate so that you can be closer to your job at Radboud University, you are entitled to a relocation allowance if:

  • You currently live more than 25 kilometres away from the campus and you move to Nijmegen and/or the surrounding area, and;
  • the relocation reduces the distance between your new home and the campus by at least 60 percent, and;
  • your relocation takes place within two years of you becoming employed by Radboud University, and;
  • you relocate because of instructions of Radboud University, as a result of which you have fulfilled the obligation to relocate or
  • you have an employment contract for an indefinite period of time, or
  • you have a temporary employment contract for 1 year or longer with the prospect of permanent employment, or
  • you have a temporary employment contract on the basis of Article 2.3 of the collective labour agreement, or
  • you have a temporary employment contract as a PhD student, or
  • you are a lecturer or researcher with an employment contract of two years or more on the grounds of Article 2.3 of the CAO.

You will be reimbursed for transport costs (for moving your household effects) and other costs, such as furnishing your new home. Apply for your removal allowance using the Moving allowance form.

Amount of allowance

If you choose to allow UTS Verkroost (Radboud University’s regular moving company) to move your household effects, you will be reimbursed for all costs. If you choose to hire a moving company of your choice, you will receive a maximum refund of the amount that was stipulated by UTS Verkroost in their quotation. You can request a quotation from UTS Verkroost by calling 024-3775322 or by sending an email to verkoop [at] utsverkroost.nl (verkoop[at]utsverkroost[dot]nl).

The amount of the allowance for the other costs will depend on your yearly income and the type of household effects that you will be relocating. ‘Household effects’ is taken to mean: personal goods such as furniture, soft furnishings and kitchenware, that have been used within a residence that is no smaller than a one-bedroom dwelling.

  • If you move your own household effects, you will receive a minimum relocation allowance of €3,000.00 and a maximum relocation allowance of €5,445.00.
  • If you are not moving any household effects, you will receive a minimum relocation allowance of €1,000.00 and a maximum relocation allowance of €1,361.25.
