A place to stay is one of the most important matters that need to be arranged when you are planning to study in Utrecht. The demand for student housing in Utrecht is very high, so finding a room in Utrecht can be a real challenge.
It is important to know beforehand that our university does not own any student accommodation. We do have a Reserved Accommodation Programme for new international non-Dutch students who enrol in an Exchange programme or in the first year of an English taught degree programme. Because the number of accommodation in the Reserved Accommodation Programme is limited and very popular, finding housing this way is not guaranteed. Read more about the Reserved Accommodation Programme.
Finding housing on your own
If you are not eligible for the Reserved Accommodation Programme or have not managed to acquire a room this way, please check our tips and tricks on Other ways to find accommodation. Because housing is in such high demand in Utrecht we encourage you to start looking as soon as possible!
