Reserved housing for international Staff & Guests (non PhD)

Dutch Universities do not own accommodation. Utrecht University does reserve short stay housing with housing providers. Please be aware that the number of accommodation is limited and the university cannot guarantee the availability. The accommodation is exclusively available for international staff, guests and PhDs who do not yet live in the Netherlands. That is either with or without an employment contract and including those who are temporarily affiliated to Utrecht University.

You can book four months prior to arrival. Booking is on first come, first served basis.

Booking is on first come, first served basis. Because reserved accommodation is limited and very popular we advise you to book well in advance. You can book up to four months prior to arrival.
