Housing for Bachelor's and Master's students

How to apply for assistance with housing?

Newly admitted Bachelor’s and Master’s students receive a confirmation statement in April or May from the International Office, which includes the option to apply for assistance in finding housing.

What happens after we have received your application?

All students who have returned the confirmation statement and paid the guarantee fee before the deadline of 1 June, will be contacted regarding housing via e-mail in early June. Via this e-mail you will be asked to express a preference for one of the housing providers that TU/e has an arrangement with. Housing will be allotted on first come, first serve basis.

For the academic year 2018-2019 TU/e has arrangements with the following housing organizations regarding housing for Bachelor's and Master's students:

All rental agreements will start between 1 August 2018 and early September 2018. Rental prices vary from €375 to €900 per month, depending on the accommodation. With Vestide and Friendly Housing you can stay in your accommodation as long as you are a student at TU/e. With Holland2Stay and The Student Hotel the maximum period of stay is one year. Rental periods for accommodation offered via HousingAnywhere differs per accommodation.

The number of accommodations available is limited so we cannot guarantee accommodation for every student, but the International Office will do its utmost to find accommodation for everyone.

Should we not be able to provide you with accommodation, we will inform you as soon as possible and present you with information on how you can make arrangements yourself. Students who cannot be offered accommodation at first, and have returned the confirmation statement and paid the guarantee fee before 1 June, will be placed on a waiting list. Please keep in mind that the waiting list does not give you any guarantees. Information on how to find housing yourself is available here

Students under the age of 18 need to keep in mind that the landlord may request for your parents/legal guardian to be present during the signing of the rental agreement. Therefore it’s advised that you check this with the landlord after you have completed a booking.
