Rent a room in Amsterdam/Diemen
If you are a degree seeker, studying at Inholland for 2 or 4 years to obtain a bachelor degree, you may rent a room provided by Inholland in the apartment building in Daalwijk or Darlingstraat for an entire academic year (2 semesters). The apartment buildings Daalwijk and Darlingstraat are located opposite from each other at five minutes cycling distance from the Inholland Amsterdam/Diemen school building. Metro/train station Amsterdam Bijlmer Arena is also on five minutes cycling distance.
You can already book accommodation in Amsterdam/Diemen while still in the application process for your study program. However, in order to receive the keys of your room at the start of the contract, your application for the study program has to be complete on 17 August 2022 latest. This means that: 1) your (foreign) diploma has been validated by the Central Student Administration and 2) if English is not your first language, you have provided proof of your English proficiency (this is part of the admission requirements for international students at Inholland).
Rental period for academic year 2022-2023
Please keep in mind that it is not possible to extend the rental contract after the dates mentioned above. If you are an international bachelors student we advise you to register for a room in Daalwijk or Darlingstraat, so you will have accommodation for a full academic year.
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 the tenancy agreement before the end date.
The online application form for accommodation will open on 15 May 2022 at 9AM CET.

All our student flats are located in the ‘Bijlmer’, a neighborhood which houses today almost 50.000 people of over more than 150 nationalities – so it is very multicultural- and was designed as a serie of nearly identical high-raised buildings, and are separated by large green areas planted with grass and trees. In the late 90’s, the municipality of Amsterdam started to renew the Bijlmer, by replacing the high-raised buildings for smaller flats and single family-homes. About ten years ago, the Daalwijk-building was transformed from a ‘family-flat’ into a student flat.
In 2012 the entire area from the Ziggo Dome in the west, Villa Arena home furnishing ‘ArenA Boulevard’ and the football stadium ‘Johan Cruyff ArenA’ started being marketed as “ArenA Poort”, also the entrance for the biggest shopping area in Amsterdam, the “Amsterdamse Poort” (Poort = Gate in Dutch).
Amsterdam is one of the safest cities in Europe and a marvelous place to be a student, but like any other city/neighborhood with a large student population, it can unfortunately attract criminal activities. We advise all students to use their common sense when going out at night. Objectively, Bijlmer may even be safer than the city center of Amsterdam, but we advise all students to avoid walking/cycling home alone. Upon arrival, the International Office of Inholland University of Applied Sciences can provide more (general) safety instructions.
Metro/train station Amsterdam Bijlmer Arena has connecting trains to major cities in the Netherlands. The Amsterdam city centre is only 15 minutes away by public transportation, while AMC hospital can be reached within only seven minutes.
