Housing

Housing for Bachelor and Master students

Information about Housing for students is not available yet. The expectation is that this information will be available by the end of October. Please check our website regularly.

Housing for exchange students

Exchange students must complete a Student Application Form. This form includes applications for housing. The form can be obtained from the contact person at the respective TU/e department. TU/e can only guarantee housing for a limited number of exchange students. If housing cannot be guaranteed, you will receive a message from the department handling your application. 

Housing for PDEng and PhD

TU/e has an agreement with Vestide regarding offering fully furnished, 'all-in' housing for international PDEng and PhD students. We cannot guarantee housing with Vestide will be available. If Vestide does not have availability, or you require family accommodation, you will be provided with information on how to arrange housing via the private market. When housing needs to be arranged via the private market, rental prices are usually higher. 

Short stay and housing for employees

We advise you to start looking for accommodation at least two months before your arrival in Eindhoven. To help you on your way you'll find an overview of housing providers in Eindhoven. Housing in Eindhoven is mainly offered by commercial housing agencies who offer housing - often especially aimed at short stayers. This means you are not bound to a rental agreement for a minimum of six to 12 months. Commercial housing agencies often require a fee for their services. The fee differs per agency, but is usually a few hundred euro. Rental agreement terms can differ per agency/accommodation. Short stay rental agreements are usually for a fixed period agreed upon by tenant and landlord. In most cases you cannot end the rental agreement before the agreed end date.

Rent benefit

Rent benefit is a subsidy provided by the Dutch government to residents on a low income with high rental costs. If you qualify for this benefit you should contact the ‘Belastingdienst’, the Dutch tax administration. Only residents on low income and living in independent residences, with their own front door and private (unshared) facilities such as kitchen, shower and toilet, are qualified for rent benefit.
