Because of a shortage of housing in Amsterdam, AUAS prioritises exchange and non-EU students when offering rooms through our student housing department. This provides a softer landing for those who are only here for a short while or would otherwise not be able to maintain their residence permit. After that students are allocated a random number in a lottery, with the numbers drawn starting from early June 2024. You will be notified if you are successful or not. Don’t forget to check the location of the room you choose so you won’t be too far from our faculty, we are located at Dokter Meurerlaan 8 in Amsterdam.

Apply for housing

You can apply for housing from Wednesday 29 May 2024 09:00 CEST until Wednesday 12 June 2024 23:59 CEST.
