You can check this in your own administration. On your bank statements, it shows when you have paid to TROTS.

If you transfer the rent your overview shows what you paid.
TROTS can also check your payment, but it will probably take a bit longer because we work with an externally located financial department. If you want our financial department to check your payments, please send an e-mail to studentliving.wageningen@trots.nl

Any day is fine, but for the payment of the rent, usually the first of the month is easiest. The only extra costs are the contract and administration costs of € 20. We will not clean the room, so there is no extra payment for that.
