Finding a place to live in the north of the Netherlands where Stenden’s branches are located is relatively easy. We even have a room guarantee for students from outside the EU, through our partner StudentStay.
Once you have been admitted and have registered for a study programme at Stenden, you should start looking for accommodation. We recommend you to start early with finding a suiting accommodation. This way you can ensure you find the right place to live during your study.
Types of accommodation
In the Netherlands it is common for students to rent a room in a shared house or apartment with other students. There are also options to rent a one-bedroom or studio apartment. Student accommodation is usually provided by real estate agents or private landlords who advertise their rooms on different platforms.
Accommodation guaranteed for Non-EU students
For students from countries outside the EU we have a room guarantee agreement with our official accommodation partner StudentStay . This way you do not have to worry about finding a room and you can choose between a rental contract for one semester or two semester. Depending on the room availability EU students are also welcome to register for a room via their website.
Rental contracts and costs
In the Netherlands you will generally be asked to sign a lease of at least 12 months and pay at least one month’s rent as a security deposit.. Most landlords offer unfurnished rooms with a complete kitchen and bathroom which you share with your housemates. StudentStay is an exception; they offer completely furnished rooms. The rent is usually paid per month and amounts to around €250 to €600 including water, utilities and Wi-Fi connection.
