Utrecht is one of the most popular university cities in the Netherlands, so the demand for student housing is very high. Typically, as a student in the Netherlands 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.
Our university does not own any student accommodation. Most rooms are let by housing corporations, housing companies and private home owners. Finding a room in Utrecht can be a real challenge. For this reason, it is most important that you arrange a room as soon as you start planning to study in Utrecht. The university has an agreement with housing corporation SSH who reserve temporary furnished accommodation especially for Erasmus and exchange students of Utrecht University.
