Rent a room in Haarlem

Long term stay in Haarlem

Looking for accommodation as a degree seeker, which means you will be studying at Inholland for four years to obtain a full bachelor degree.

How to apply

How to apply

If you are going to study at Inholland for a longer time (more than one year), you may apply for a one year rental contract (depending on availability of rooms). The furnished campus accommodation is only available to first-year degree students.

Be aware of the fact that we only process your housing application after you are completely admitted to Inholland. This means that among other things your (foreign) diploma has to be validated first by the Central Student Administration. Secondly, if English is not your first language, you will need to provide proof of your English proficiency (this is part of the admission requirements for international students at Inholland). The entire procedure can take months.

Long term options (recommended)

In case you are looking for accommodation and will be studying in Haarlem for a full four-year bachelor degree programme, we strongly advise you to register with ROOM. That is the website of Duwo, the housing corporation we work with.

They also offer rooms next to Inholland Haarlem, at Schoonzichtlaan, but unfurnished and you can stay in those rooms as long as you are a student. With these rooms, you do not have to leave after the first year.

Please register at ROOM and indicate you are an Inholland international student.
You can apply for rooms at these addresses:
- Schoonzichtlaan, Haarlem (next to the school)
- Opaallaan, Hoofddorp (Haarlemmermeer, close to Haarlem)

Please make sure you register with ROOM at least three months before arrival and keep checking the rooms on offer regularly.

We recommend that you register with Studentenwoningweb as soon as you arrive in the Netherlands. This is important, because student rooms are very scarce and there is a long waiting list! When your first year is over and the lease of the initial room from Duwo you may have had ends, you may be eligible for student accommodation through Studentenwoningweb.

The location

Inholland Haarlem has a spacious and modern student accommodation at Schoonzichtlaan next to the university campus. All residences have a communal kitchen, living room with TV, a lift, a laundry area with two washing machines and two dryers, and a roof patio. The rooms are furnished with a bed and mattress, sheets, wardrobe, desk, chair, lamps, fridge, cooker, and table with chairs. Please note that the standard internet is available through a LAN cable, but there is no WiFi. If you want to use the LAN connection on your laptop, make sure you bring your own router.

Schoonzichtlaan is five minutes’ walk from the Overveen train station and Overveen shops, including a supermarket. The bus stop is around the corner from the apartment building and takes you to the city centre of Haarlem in approximately 10 minutes by bus or approximately 15 minutes by bicycle.

The rooms

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 2022-2023
The rent prices differ per type of room, but always include gas, water, electricity, local taxes and wired internet.

  • A single room with shared kitchen: €499,28 to €560,71 per month.
  • A shared room with shared facilities: €349,19 per month per person (maximum 2 persons per room).

Please note that abovementioned rent prices will still be updated for academic year 2022-2023.
