Student Housing in the Netherlands
The Netherlands are crowded and finding student housing is no simple task, especially in the larger cities such as Amsterdam, Haag, Rotterdam and Utrecht, and the famous student cities like Leiden and Groningen. The last few years, the prices on the owner-occupied houses have increased dramatically. For a one bedroom apartment on the private market in the centre of Amsterdam the cost is approximately EUR 800/month. There are some cheaper alternatives called council houses protected by a point based system pressing the prices down. However, the waiting lists for these homes are long; many Dutch students have to commute a few years before qualifying for these apartments. Most Universities offer short stay solutions on the behalf of foreign guests that need temporary accommodation.
