Once you have been admitted and have registered for a study programme at NHL Stenden, you should start looking for accommodation. You can find more information and tips to help you find housing in your student city by clicking on the campus location below. We recommend you give yourself plenty of time (3-4 months prior to study start) to find suitable accommodation, where you can feel at home. 


Types of accommodation 

In the Netherlands, students usually rent a room in a shared house or apartment with other students, but you could also rent a one-bedroom or studio apartment. Student accommodation is usually provided by real estate agents or private landlords who advertise their rooms on different platforms.   

Rental contracts and costs 

In the Netherlands, you will generally be asked to sign a lease of at least 12 months and pay a deposit of at least one month’s rent. Most landlords offer unfurnished rooms with a complete kitchen and bathroom which you share with your housemates. StudentStay is an exception; they offer completely furnished rooms. The rent is usually paid per month.
