Unlike to what you might be used to, Dutch universities do not own student housing. Instead, students are responsible for finding their own accommodation. Because searching for housing from abroad can be very difficult, Utrecht University aims to inform you of various ways to find housing. In addition, Utrecht University offers a Reserved Accommodation Programme for new international students that meet the requirements. Through this programme new international students can apply for a limited number of furnished rooms and studios. The accommodation is reserved with reliable housing providers.
Please be aware that the Reserved Accommodation Programme is limited and does not guarantee housing. Anticipate that you might not be able to book this way and also consider other ways to find housing in advance. If you have any questions about ways to find housing do not hesitate to let us know.
