Types of accommodation

In the Netherlands, it is common for students to rent a room in a shared house or apartment with other students. There are also options to 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.  

Guaranteed accomodation for Non-EU students

For students from countries outside the EU we have a room guarantee agreement untill the 1st of August for the September intake and the 1st of January for the February intake, with our official accommodation partner StudentStay. This way you do not have to worry about finding a room and you can choose between a rental contract for one or two semesters. Depending on the room availability EU students are also welcome to register for a room via their website.
