Accommodation in The Hague

Finding accommodation in the popular cities of The Netherlands can be a real challenge. Inholland University of Applied Sciences does not have a tradition of on-campus accommodation. Currently, there is a growing housing shortage for students in The Netherlands. Therefore, we advise you to start looking for accommodation at least four months in advance. To help you finding a place we have listed out some housing agencies, companies and platforms

IMPORTANT INFORMATION:

Please realize that renting a room through all of these services falls under your own responsibility, so be aware of fake accounts. 

Never send a copy of your ID if you do not know who the owner is. Furthermore, never pay deposit or rent until you have the keys to the accommodation in your possession. If the landlord wants to send you the keys by post, this is usually a sign of fraud as well,  as well as a payment via Western Union. Be careful of these signs! 

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:

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