General information

Early or late arrival

Early or late arrival

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.

Fixed dates
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.

Be aware of scams

Be aware of scams

Unfortunately, there are people who will try to take advantage of students who are desperate to find accommodation. Please be aware that during your (online) search you might encounter frauds.

How to protect yourself?

  • Always check if the agency really exists by checking whether the agency is listed on the Netherlands Chamber of Commerce website (insert the agents name in the search bar).
  • Be critical and check for reviews or warnings.
  • Never send a copy of your ID or passport if you do not know who the owner is.
  • Do not pay a deposit or rent before you are in possession of keys or before you have signed a contract. If a landlord offers you to send keys by post it might be a sign of fraud.
  • Avoid renting an apartment that you have not seen. It is a red flag If the landlord cannot show you the apartment.
  • Do not make payments via Western Union, PayPal accounts or to foreign accounts. Be critical of the account details. Does the bank name look legitimate?
  • Always check the address that is on the offer.
  • Never trust an offer that is too good to be true, it probably is.



Did you find a room? Go see it for yourself and always take someone with you. Prepare a list of questions in advance, for example:

  • Does this address allow you to register at the Municipality? (Registration is compulsory)
  • How long is the lease?
  • Is the landlord reliable?
  • Do you have a private entrance?
  • Is there heating, a kitchen, a sink, a toilet?
  • What about the (fire) safety?

Read the contract very carefully before you sign and make sure you understand everything. Check what is included in the rent and what is not. Additional costs are often not covered by the basic rent. Example of additional costs are:

  • Gas, water, electricity
  • Subscription internet, cable
  • Municipal taxes
  • Insurance
  • Service charge (cleaning and maintenance of common areas)
