Eindhoven will be building a temporary location for asylum seekers on Noord-Brabantlaan in Meerhoven in the coming weeks. From February 1, 2024, the emergency crisis shelter will offer room for two hundred asylum seekers. In addition, the temporary reception of asylum seekers in the Novotel at Eindhoven Airport will be expanded from February 1, 2024.
