If you want to rent a room as an international student you will initially search for student accommodation on the private market. Studies show that international students often have unpleasant surprises when dealing with private agencies. Websites are often in Dutch, the rooms are unfurnished and most landlords work with ‘hospitality evenings’. This is a selection process whereby the incumbent students of the house interview and choose a new roommate. This is naturally very difficult if you live on the other side of the world. Besides this the experiences of international students have shown that they are not satisfied with the quality of the rooms and furniture.
If you rent a room through Student Housing Holland, you’re always get a fully furnished room in a typical Dutch student house together with other international students. Housing and services for international students is our core business and focus for years now which makes the quality of our service level at the highest comparing with other private agencies. To reinforce this claim, we are the preferred housing supplier of Tilburg University, Fontys University and I*ESN Tilburg
We really believe that a warm welcome is key for your international experience. As your first friends in town we make you feel comfortable right from the start!
Housing allowance is a compensation given by the Dutch government to people who have a lower income and a relatively high cost of rent.
As an international student it can be hard to receive housing allowance because of the extensive registration process (bureaucracy is something where the Netherlands is known for). The most important rule in order to be eligible for housing allowance is that you are 23 years or older and that you live in a studio or apartment with own facilities. The rental price may not exceed €710,68.
