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.

Reserved accommodation

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. If this is fully booked, you will have to find accommodation on your own. 

Finding housing on your own

It is important to anticipate that you might not be able to book reserved accommodation, and will have to find accommodation on your own. Because this can be difficult and time-consuming, we aim to advise you best we can and assist you during your search.
