Share a house

It is common in the Netherlands for male and female students to live together in a shared house. It is also possible to rent a bedroom from a landlady or landlord, or find a room to sublet, find a place to live on your own or to buy property. Most rental contracts run for at least six months or a year. On average, a bedroom in the Netherlands costs somewhere between €300- to €600 a month. Rooms can vary in size, but regardless of whether you are renting a shoebox or a ballroom, rooms are usually well suited for the needs of an individual student.

Housing can be tricky for Dutch and foreign students alike, but many universities offer help in this matter. It might even be the case that a university has specially reserved some rooms for foreign students. These rooms might even be furnished, which is not usually the case with Dutch student accommodations.
