Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences


Studying in Amsterdam is an unforgettable experience. Given this fact, a good place to live is essential. The Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences (AUAS) assists international students in finding accommodation in Amsterdam, but the demand for student housing is high and available accommdoation is scarce. We can offer a limited number of rooms to exchange students and international first-year degree students only. The AUAS cannot guarantee housing, but we will do our utmost to help you.

AUAS has agreements with various housing corporations and partners in order to provide furnished accommodation to international students for a maximum period of one year. It is a challenge to find suitable accommodation in Amsterdam, therefore it is important to arrange your accommodation as soon as possible. Look here for more information about how to apply for a room.

Of course, students are free to search for accommodation on the private market. Look here for more information and advice on finding a room on your own.

Planning to study for more than one year

If you are planning on staying in Amsterdam for longer than one year, we strongly advise you to register at Dutch student housing websites before your arrival in Amsterdam. Registration could provide you with a student room when AUAS can no longer assist you with accommodation.
