We like to make sure you feel at ease when you first arrive on Texel. The Royal NIOZ Newbie Program does exactly that. We develop a personal introduction program, hook you up with a colleague and set you well on your way.
On Texel we provide you (and your partner, spouse or family) with temporary or permanent accommodation. Check out our campus ‘De Potvis’, Texel hotels, B&B’s or airbnb’s. If you like to explore the Yerseke facilities, check out our guesthouse ‘De Keete’, Yerseke hotels and airbnb here.
