Housing for international students

Finding accommodation in the Netherlands can be challenging, especially given the current housing shortage. It's important not to underestimate the task and give yourself enough time to find a suitable place to live. That's why we recommend starting your search at least four months before your arrival.

Some Inholland locations offer a limited number of rooms and studios to first-year international and exchange students through housing providers. However, these accommodations are in high demand and are allocated on a first-come-first-serve basis. Please note that there are not enough reserved rooms and studios for all incoming students. So, it's likely that you will need to look for private accommodation.

At Inholland, we want to help you find accommodation. While we do not search for or mediate between students and providers of private accommodation, we understand that finding the right place to stay is important. That's why each Inholland location provides a list of recommendations to help you in your search.

Be aware of scams. We want to ensure your safety and well-being, so here are some important tips to keep in mind while looking for accommodation in the Netherlands:

  • Never send a copy of your ID or passport if you don't know the owner.
  • Avoid making payments until you have received the keys.
