Housing

Studying in Amsterdam is an unforgettable experience. A good place to live will make your time abroad even more memorable.

FINDING HOUSING

While the AUAS assists international students in finding housing in Amsterdam, the demand for student housing is high and available accommodation is scarce. We are therefore only able to offer a limited number of rooms. This means that the AUAS cannot guarantee housing, but we will do our utmost to help you find accommodation.

  • You are an exchange student for 1 or 2 semesters or
  • You are an international student starting your first year of an English-taught* degree programme and
  • You did not receive housing through the AUAS or Oncampus in the past 

*Please contact us if you are an international student starting a Dutch-taught degree programme. We cannot guarantee housing for you, but we will try to assist you, depending on availability.

Application procedure: step by step

If you are planning on staying in Amsterdam for longer than one year, we strongly advise you to also register on Dutch student housing websites long before your arrival in Amsterdam (as soon as you have registered for your degree programme). Registration on these sites is an important backup measure if the AUAS is unable to provide you with a room.

Students are of course free to search for housing on the private market themselves. You will need to start your search in time.
