General information

Please note that it is not possible to request accommodation with a specific housing agency. You cannot view your room beforehand. However, if you have any questions about the room that has been offered to you, you can contact the International Relations Office.

Exchange students are offered housing with shared facilities. This means you have a private room, but you share the bathroom and kitchen with other students. In the Netherlands it is common for boys and girls to live together in a student house. There is no separate accommodation for boys or girls.
