Accommodation in The Hague

The international Creative Business programme of Inholland The Hague has reserved a limited number of rooms for the first-year international and exchange students. Rooms will be assigned on a first-come, first-served basis. More information will be published around May/June 2020.  Please note: the building next to Inholland The Hague is not in our possession but from 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)
