So, I'm pretty sure you must have heard about the accommodation situation in Utrecht. If not let me give you a short summary, since Utrecht consists of a few different institutions as well as Utrecht university, it’s populated with many students doing a masters, bachelors or an exchange programme.
This makes it difficult to find accommodation in Utrecht. There have even been a few cases where students have had to leave due being unable to find accommodation (although this is very rare), so it is not something that should be taken lightly. Accommodation in Utrecht varies from student housing (catering to only students) to staying in private housing (shared or private) with a landlord-tenant system. I will share with you my experience of finding accommodation in Utrecht and give you some suggestions and tips on how to get ahead when finding accommodation in Utrecht.
