Accommodation for International Students in the Netherlands

Terms and Conditions - Saxion Housing

Accommodation is offered to European students on a voluntary basis; you may prefer to find your own accommodation. If you choose to make use of our offer, please note the following terms and conditions.

We encourage European students to find their own accommodation, but in case you would like to have everything arranged in time and want to immerse yourself in international student life, we offer the possibility to reserve a room in one of our international student houses*. Our student accommodations are fully equipped with all the basic inventory.

The rooms are available from 17 August onwards. This is the starting date for all of our rental agreements. The end date and rental fee depends on your study programme:
