When you study abroad, one of the most important things you have to arrange is your accommodation. Student accommodation in The Netherlands differs from many other countries: most universities do not offer housing on campus and most Dutch and international students find their own accommodation on the private market. Due to the current housing shortage in the Netherlands it can be challenging to find an accommodation. Start looking for accommodation at least 5-6 months prior to the start of your studies. We strongly advise you not to depart to the Netherlands without having arranged (temporary) accommodation.
Students arriving at VHL in Velp can apply for housing with SSHN. SSHN offers a range of rooms in student buildings around Arnhem. There are also many other options available to find a room in Velp and Arnhem such as private housing agencies and Facebook groups.
