Amsterdam is one of the most popular university cities in the Netherlands; the demand for reasonably priced accommodation is very high. To assist international students with finding suitable accommodation, the AUAS has agreements with various housing corporations in Amsterdam to provide furnished accommodation for a maximum period of one year. Students are also free to search for accommodation on the private market.

A typical aspect of student housing in the Netherlands is that you live with other students in a house or flat and share the kitchen, bathroom, washing machine etcetera. The rooms are often modest but comfortable.

Apply early

To increase your chances of securing a room, please apply as early as possible. The AUAS will assist you as best as we can, but we cannot guarantee housing availability for all international students.
