Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences

Locations and room types

The AUAS offers various types of rooms: shared rooms, private rooms with shared facilities and private rooms with private facilities. The rental prices range from approximately €360 to €850 per calendar month, depending on the type of room and room size.

Budget categories

We work with 4 different budget categories:

< € 410                 shared rooms and very few private rooms with shared facilities
€ 410 - 500          small private rooms with shared facilities
€ 500 - 600          larger private rooms with shared facilities or small private rooms with private facilities
€ 600 - 850          larger private rooms with private facilities 

The mentioned rental rates are per calendar month (including electricity, water, gas and internet). Please also calculate public transport costs in Amsterdam up to €70-100 per month when choosing your budget. 

The housing department will do their best to offer a room in your chosen budget. However, this cannot be guaranteed, as this depends on availability.

Student housing locations

The AUAS accommodations are located in different areas of Amsterdam and surroundings. Room types and locations range from a flat with other students in the South East of the city to small scale accommodation in the city centre.

All student buildings can be reached easily by public transport or by bike within max. 50 minutes. Please note that you cannot apply for a specific location. You will either receive a suitable room offer or you will be invited to search the housing corporation’s databases for available rooms.

Mixed floors and RA's

Most international student rooms are situated on floors with only international students and sometimes also with Dutch students.  You will be expected to comply with existing house rules. 

Resident Assistants (RA’s) are Dutch students who live with the international students in a number of buildings. They can help with all kinds of questions about the building, your room or your housemates. Also, the RA’s often organise drinks and activities.


In case there are any special needs regarding your accommodation due to disabilities please contact us. 


Although the housing corporations do their best to meet students’ reservation preferences, they cannot guarantee that everyone’s preferences can be met.
