There are various solutions for housing during your study, depending on the location of your campus. 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.

Non-EU Master and Certificate students

VHL University of Applied Sciences (VHL) works with several housing partners in the Velp/Arnhem area to arrange short stay furnished rooms (This is a one year fixed lease contract without cancellation option) for non-European Master and Certificate students. The student houses are located at a reasonable distance from VHL. You will have your own private room and share the bathroom, fully equipped kitchens, laundry machines etc. with a few other students. Room prices vary in the range of €400,= to €500,= per month including service costs (water, heating, taxes etc). When your admission is completed, we will contact you with further details on your student room. 

You are also free to use the information below to organize housing in Velp or Arnhem yourself that meets your specific private requirements.  When you have arranged your own place to stay, please inform us a.s.a.p. and send the address in an e-mail to international@hvhl.nl.

EU and non-EU Bachelor students, EU Master students and Erasmus students

Many private housing agencies offer affordable student housing in Arnhem or Velp. They offer a range of different furnished or unfurnished rooms, generally costing between €350 – €500 a month. Please start your search in time: by August rooms are short and prices are up. In most student houses you will have your own room and share the bathroom and kitchen with your housemates.

VHL can also arrange furnished accommodation in one of our partner’s buildings for you in case there is a surplus of available housing. You can make a request to be added to the waiting list by sending an email to international@hvhl.nl. Rooms will be subject to availability.
