Rent a room in Haarlem
If you are an exchange student, you are able to rent a furnished room provided by Inholland at the Schoonzichtlaan apartment building for one semester or an entire academic year. Please note that we have very limited rooms available.
At Schoonzichtlaan, when renting a single room, you have your own bedroom in a six- or eight-room apartment. Each bedroom has its own bathroom with toilet. The living room and kitchen are shared.
You may also rent a shared room. In that case, the bedroom, bathroom and toilet are shared with one other student. You will share the living room and kitchen with all students in the apartment.
All rooms are furnished, designated for students from abroad. For a list of the inventory, please check the website of DUWO.
The apartments are usually mixed-gender (male and female students in 1 apartment), but the shared bedrooms are always either male or female, so not mixed-gender.
Prices for 2023-2024
The rent prices differ per type of room, but always include gas, water, electricity, local taxes, tv and wired internet.
More information about the rooms, inventory and payments you can find here.
