Inholland has an agreement with student housing corporation DUWO to provide furnished accommodation for international students who are admitted to Inholland The Hague. We only have a limited number of rooms available. Make sure to apply early if you want to secure a room. We cannot guarantee housing, but we will do our utmost to help you.
As an exchange student, you will come to Inholland via your own university (which is always a partner university of Inholland). You can rent accommodation for one semester or an entire academic year.
As a degree seeker, you will study at Inholland for four years to obtain your bachelor's degree. You can rent accommodation for one academic year. You will have to find your own accommodation after this first year.
If you will arrive more than a week after the starting date of your rental contract, you need to notify both Inholland's international office and housing corporation DUWO. If you fail to do so, the room will be allocated to someone else, and you will still be charged the first month's rent and administration costs.
It is not possible to get a reduction for late arrival or early departure. All rental dates are fixed, so it is not possible to end your contract before the end date that is mentioned in your tenancy agreement.
Inholland does not mediate between the students and the providers of private accommodation. Below you can find alternative options to find your own accommodation.
