Housing contact information

Finding housing in Utrecht can be difficult and has its own typicalities. Unfortunately, Utrecht University does not have the capacity to match students with listings nor can we find your housing on your behalf. Still, we aim to advise you best we can and provide the information that may help you during your search.

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions:

Reliability check

Unfortunately, some people will try to take advantage of the high demand for rooms by advertising fake offers. If you have any doubt about the reliability of an offer you are always welcome to contact us for advice through the contact information above. Make sure to include as much information as possible about the ad, landlord or advertiser, any photos, and the accommodation when you contact us.
