Most rooms in Utrecht are let by housing corporations, housing companies and private home owners. Another typical aspect of student housing in the Netherlands is that you rent a room in a flat or house where you live with other students and share facilities like the kitchen, bathroom and washing machine.

Reserved Accommodation

Our university does not own any student accommodation. We have an agreement with housing organisations who reserve accommodation for new international non-Dutch students who enrol in the first year of an English taught degree programme. All accommodation is rented on a first come, first serve basis, and if you are a degree seeking student, for the first year of studies only.
