Arnaud van Haaster


I’m the president/chairman of the association since the summer of 2019. It is my duty to keep an overview of all activities that this capable board is conducting and lead its meetings.

Also as president I am the face of the association when BRES is representing students towards institutions like the municipality or Leiden University.

I also made this website!

As of september 2021, I am the treasurer of the tenants association BRES. As treasurer, I am responsible for the financial affairs of the association. BRES receives income from their members and funding from DUWO. With this, we organise, amongst others, giveaways, like the refrigerator action and activities for members, via for example our tenant commission. If you have question regarding the finance of BRES, feel free to send me an e-mail.

I have been a BRES board member since december 2018. Within the BRES board, my role is to answer all of your questions about being a DUWO tenant and to solve your problems with DUWO when you are faced with difficulties regarding your DUWO room. This means that if you send an e-mail to BRES regarding your problems with DUWO or your questions about renting a room at DUWO, I will take care of it. I will answer your questions and try to solve your problems to the best of my ability.

Right now I am finishing my Public Administration studies at Leiden University and I have been living in a DUWO house for about 5 years. Hence, I know how frustrating problems with your rent can be. This is why I am happy to help and advocate for your interests as a DUWO tenant. So, don’t hesitate to e-mail us with your questions of problems!
