SSH Long Stay
SSH is the largest student housing organisation in Utrecht. SSH offers furnished short-stay accommodation via the Reserved Accommodation Programme for first year international students (limited) as well as unfurnished long-stay accommodation in Utrecht, Zeist, Amersfoort and several other towns.
SSH Long Stay is available for Dutch and international students between the ages of 16 and 27 and can be rented for the full duration of their studies. The registration fee is only €20 and is valid until you are 30 years old. Please note that you must build up a significant period of registration time to be eligible for SSH Long Stay housing. It is unlikely that you will be able to find housing this way before the start of your studies.
The waiting time for SSH Long Stay ranges from 18 to over 30 months, depending on the time of year and the location. If you are even remotely considering enrolling in a degree programme, and you would like to increase your chances of finding long-stay housing once you move here, we highly recommend that you register as soon as possible.
