Ways to find accommodation

The demand for student housing in Utrecht is high and the housing market can be difficult to access for international students when still abroad. This is why the university reserves a range of furnished rooms for new coming international students with a number of housing organisations.

This temporary accommodation is fully fitted and furnished, and utilities such as internet, water, gas and heating are included in the rent. The accommodation is available for the first year of studies only, and the number of accommodations that the university reserves is limited: it is rented on a first come, first serve basis. 

Reserved accommodation programme

New international students and Erasmus and Exchange students can apply for the reserved accommodation programme but the demand for this type of accommodation is high, it is only for the first year and availability is not guaranteed.  Especially if you are studying in Utrecht for a year or longer, it is good to explore various other options. However, do not underestimate the time and effort it takes to find a place to stay.
