Rent a room in Amsterdam

Long term stay in Amsterdam

Inholland has rooms available for new first year international students (including students from Surinam and the Caribbean). The rooms are located in apartment buildings in Daalwijk and Darlingstraat. 

Please note: the rooms are allocated on a first come first serve basis, so we recommend you to apply as soon as possible. We can't guarantee a room for every student.

How to apply

How to apply

New international students
You can already book accommodation in Amsterdam while still in the application process for the study program. However, to receive the keys of your room at the start of the contract, your application for the study program has to be complete on 14 August 2024 latest. This means that:

  1. Your (foreign) diploma has been validated by the Admissions Office.
  2. Your proof of English proficiency has been checked by the Admissions Office (if applicable).

If your application is not complete by 14 August 2024, we will have to cancel your rental contract.

Current Inholland students
If you are already an Inholland student, you may also apply through the form. However, new students have priority, so you will be on a waiting list first. In July we will know if we have any rooms left, and we will inform you then. Unfortunately, we can't give any guarantees. Please don't email us about this.

Application form
The online application form for students starting in September 2024 opens on 15 May 2024 at 9AM CET. Deadline for application is 29 May 2024 at 9AM CET. Please mind: first come first served!

Apply here (from 15 May)

What happens after my application?
Within two weeks after your application, you will receive login details for the ROOM.nl portal. In this portal you can see the available rooms, including pictures and other information you need. You have two days to choose a room. If you wait longer, your booking period will expire and you will no longer have the chance to book a room.

Be prepared to take actions when you receive emails and make sure you have the money for the first payment ready. 

How to get to the school building

How to get to the school building

To get to the school building (address: Pina Bauschplein 4) from Darlingstraat or Daalwijk, you can use the following options:

  • Cycling. This takes about 35-45 minutes.
  • Public transport. This takes about 50-60 minutes. Please note that this involves extra costs - see below for more information.

In general, it is not possible to come to the school building by car, as there are very few parking spots available.

Public transport
Depending on which public transport you choose, the price for a one-way ticket is about 3-4 euros. It may be worth it to buy a discount card. You can check the options on the website of the public transportation company of the Amsterdam region, called GVB

European students that work in the Netherlands may be eligible for a student public transport card, that gives you the option to travel for free on week OR weekend days. On the website of the government you can find the requirements and more information. Unfortunately, non-European students are not eligible for this.

On the website 9292 you can find out more about the options of public transport, the price, etcetera.

If you book a room through Inholland, you agree that you are aware of the travel time and costs to get to the school building.

Daalwijk

Daalwijk

The Daalwijk apartment building has 2-, 3- and 4-bedroom apartments. You will have your own bedroom and share the facilities (toilet, bathroom and kitchen) with the other residents. If you want to have a room with your own facilities, you should choose a studio in Darlingstraat.

The individual (bed)rooms have different sizes, between 10 and 17 m².  All rooms are furnished. There are laundry facilities on the first floor of the building (not included in the rent).

On the website of DUWO you can find the inventory list, with a list of items that you can find in the rooms.

Rent per month 
The monthly rent ranges from € 380 to € 535 per month. The rent depends on the size of the room and the number of roommates that you share the facilities with.

The rent includes electricity, gas, heating, water, internet and TV cable connection. The administration fee, cleaning costs, kitchen package, bed linen and local taxes are not included.

Location
Daalwijk and Darlingstraat are at ten minutes cycling distance from metro/train station Amsterdam Bijlmer Arena. Here you can hop on a train to many destinations in the Netherlands. Using public transport, you access the centre of Amsterdam (Central Station) within fifteen minutes.

Daalwijk and Darlingstraat are a five-minute bike ride away from the Amsterdamse Poort shopping centre. It offers a huge variety of stores: from small boutiques up to well-known department stores and large supermarkets. In Amsterdamse Poort you can go for your daily shopping, and you will find many different restaurants. The big furniture store IKEA is also nearby Daalwijk and Darlingstraat. The largest cinema complex in the country, Pathé Arena, is in the same area. Next door you will also find the largest concert halls of the Netherlands: Ziggo Dome and AFAS Live.

Darlingstraat

Darlingstraat

These 'rooms' are actually studio apartments: they include a private bathroom, toilet and kitchenette. All studios are furnished. The size of the studio is approximately 20 m². Each studio is designed for one student. It is therefore not possible to live together with someone else in the studio.

On the website of DUWO you can find the inventory list, with a list of items that you can find in the rooms.



 

Rent
The rental price is approximately € 620 per month. The rent includes electricity, gas, heating, water, internet and TV cable connection. The administration fee, cleaning costs, kitchen package, bed linen and local taxes are not included. There are laundry facilities in the middle block of the residence (not included in the rent).

Housing benefit
You might be entitled to housing benefit for these studios. Amongst other things, this depends on your income. For more information, check the website of the government.

Rental dates

Rental period for academic year 2024-2025

For the rooms in Darlingstraat and Daalwijk, the rental dates are (to be confirmed):

26 August 2024 - 11 August 2025.

When signing the tenancy agreement, you commit to paying the rent until the last day of the rental period. It is not possible to cancel your contract before the end date. 

Please keep in mind that it is not possible to extend the rental contract after the dates mentioned above. This means that you will have to look for a room on your own after the first year.

After your first year

After your first year

You can only book a room through Inholland with DUWO for one year maximum. That means that you will have to find your own room after the first year.

You can register for another room via DUWO after your rental period via Inholland has ended. To do so, you have to contact the customer service of ROOM (the DUWO booking platform). You can ask them to change your account into a regular account. With this regular account, you can respond to other ROOM housing offers. 

You can already do so when you have a signed rental agreement. This way you are registered for the waiting list as early as possible. The longer you have been registered, the bigger the chance of finding a room.

Please note that in this case, Inholland no longer mediates between you and DUWO, and you have to apply directly on the ROOM website.
