Finding affordable accommodation in some Dutch cities such as Amsterdam or The Hague can be very challenging for international students. Living on campus is not common in the Netherlands and universities often do not offer accommodation for students unless they are partnered with a separate rental company such as DUWO. You can find more information about university student housing through your University´s website. We highly recommend searching in advance via different online platforms as well as Facebook groups. This website offers some options of trustworthy platforms and housing agencies. Leiden University´s housing website also offers comprehensive advice for your housing search. Finally, you can work with real estate agencies to find rentals, but this is not preferred by students as it is an expensive method.
