Utrecht is one of the most popular university cities in the Netherlands. Because of this, the demand for student housing in and around Utrecht is extremely high. Many students find it difficult and time-consuming to look for accommodation. It is a good idea to anticipate the time and effort it may take you to find a room, and start your search several months in advance, even prior to your admission. Unfortunately, Utrecht University cannot guarantee housing.
Utrecht University reserves a limited number of accommodations with a number of corporations for eligible international students for the first year of their studies. Finding housing this way is not guaranteed. Reservations for the Reserved Accommodation Programme for new international Bachelor's and Master's degree students started on 17 May 2018. Reservations for Erasmus and Exchange students opened on 24 May 2018. If this is fully booked, you will have to find accommodation on your own.
