Accommodation in The Hague

UPDATE: 16-6-2020: Through collaboration with housing corporation DUWO Inholland University Of Applied Sciences offers a limited number of rooms for roughly 10% of international first-year degree and exchange students. We allocate on a first-come, first-serve basis so we would advise you to apply early to maximize the chances of getting a room.

All the rooms are fully furnished and self-contained. Monthly rent: € 600,10. This includes all bills (water, electricity, internet, TV) and bedding. Surface: 20.60 m2 with a private kitchen and bathroom. Meal plans are not offered. Three months’ rent need to be paid in advance + DUWO's € 14,50 euro administration fee.

In case you are interested in a room you can apply here. After submitting your application you will receive further information from the accommodation team The Hague. More information about the rooms including the rental period is available on the website of DUWO.

Unfortunately, not everyone who applies gets a room and there is no waiting list. Most first-year students will have to look for accommodation independently. We advise all students to start looking for accommodation at least 3 months in advance. Please find the recommendations below.  Please note: the building next to Inholland The Hague is not in our possession but owned by housing corporation Wooninvest.

Be aware for scam!

Please be aware that during your (online) search you might encounter frauds. Some tips: never send a copy of your ID, do not make a deposit/pay rent before you have the key of the room. If a landlord offers you to send you the keys by post, this might be a sign of fraud as well. Do not make payments via Western Union. We advise you to check if the agency really exists. Be critical and check for reviews or warnings. You can also check if the agency is listed on the Dutch Chamber of Commerce website (in Dutch, but simply enter the company name in the search bar to look for listings).

Finding your own accommodation

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
  • Service charge (cleaning and maintenance of common areas)
