Inholland offers a limited number of rooms for international students.
Inholland has an agreement with student housing corporation DUWO in order to provide furnished accommodation next to the university building. To secure a room, you should apply early. We only have a very limited number of rooms available. We cannot guarantee housing, but we will do our utmost to help you.
Our accommodation in Haarlem is only meant for international students who are admitted to Inholland University of Applied Sciences, location Haarlem. If you are admitted to Inholland at another location, please visit the main accommodation page.
As an exchange student, you will come to Inholland after being nominated by 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 student, you will study at Inholland for four years in order to obtain your Bachelor's degree. First year degree students 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.
It is very difficult to find accommodation in Haarlem due to a shortage of student rooms. If you want or need to look for housing on your own, we advise you to start looking at least three to four months before arrival!

Unfortunately, there are people who will try to take advantage of students desperate to find accommodation. Check whether the agency is listed on the Dutch Chamber of Commerce website (in Dutch, but simply insert the agents name in the search bar to look for listings). We advise you to check if the agency really exists. Be critical and check for reviews or warnings. Please be aware that during your (online) search you might encounter frauds.
If you live more than 80 kilometres away from Haarlem, you can sign up for a waiting list. If we have rooms available at the beginning of the semester (beginning of September or beginning of February), we will offer them to the students on this waiting list (first come, first served).
Please note that new international students always have priority. We cannot give any guarantees that we can offer a room. Therefore we strongly advise you to check the website of DUWO and other student housing corporations, such as De Key, Our Campus, Student Hotel etc.
Although the international office and housing corporation DUWO do their best to meet your preferences, we cannot guarantee that everyone’s preferences are met. Also, as our number of rooms is limited, we cannot give any guarantee that you will get a room.
In case there are any special needs regarding your accommodation due to disabilities please send an e-mail with a medical statement to firstname.lastname@example.org.
