Accommodation in The Hague

We advise all students to start looking for accommodation at least 4 months in advance. Please find our accommodation offer and recommendations below. Unfortunately, there are not enough allocated rooms for all first-year international and exchange students. Most students will have to look for accommodation by themselves. Therefore, do not limit your options and also look for accommodation on the private market. 

Please note: Inholland does not mediate between the students and the providers of private accommodation. Furthermore, the building with student rooms next to Inholland University Of Applied Sciences The Hague is not in our possession. It is owned by housing corporation Wooninvest.

Some words of advice

Check whether the agency is listed on the Dutch Chamber of Commerce website (in Dutch, but simply insert the agents name in the search bar to look for listings). We advise you to check if the agency really exists. Be critical and check for reviews or warnings. Please be aware that during your (online) search you might encounter frauds.

Be aware of scams:

  • Never send a copy of your ID if you do not know who the owner is.
  • Do not pay a deposit or rent before you are in possession of keys.
  • If a landlord offers you to send keys by post it might be a sign of fraud.
  • Do not make payments via Western Union.

Checklist

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

  1. Is the landlord reliable?
  2. Do you have a private entrance? 
  3. Is there heating, a kitchen, a sink, a toilet?
  4. What about the (fire) safety?
  5. Does this address allow you register at The Hague Municipality? (registration is compulsory)
  6. How long is the lease? 

 

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.

  • Gas, water, electricity
  • Subscription internet, cable
  • Municipal taxes
  • Insurance
