Universities in the Netherlands do not own student housing. Utrecht University reserves a limited number of rooms for Exchange students and new international non-Dutch students who enrol in the first year of an English taught degree programme. This programme is limited and does not guarantee housing.

Who can apply

  • Erasmus and Exchange students
  • International degree seeking first year Bachelor’s and Master’s students who enrol in an English taught degree programme
  • Students who have a non-Dutch nationality and who do not yet live in the Netherlands
  • There is no age restriction

Registration and booking dates for the next academic year differ per student group and housing provider. Select the housing provider below for more information.

Important to know
  • Once booking opens it is possible to reserve accommodation prior to your formal admission
  • The accommodation is available for fixed rental periods and for the first year of studies only
  • Because the accommodation is not owned by Utrecht University, contracts are between the tenant and the housing corporation
  • The accommodation is rented out on a first come, first served basis
  • Do not underestimate the run for housing once booking has opened! In previous years the accommodation has booked up within hours
