International student housing

Amsterdam is a great city to live in but its housing is severely limited and expensive. You must start your search for housing as soon as possible. The options available to you are outlined below.

The severe housing shortage in Amsterdam means you must not wait to start your housing search. Use resources below to make a plan as soon as you can.

Finding housing on your own

If you are not eligible for nor offered a room by AUAS student housing, you will probably need to organise your own housing. We'll be honest - it's hard work. However, by starting your search early you can find a room that helps you get the most of Amsterdam and from your studies.
