What are the housing requirements for students who need a visa/residence permit?
Before the Admissions Office can apply for your visa and/or residence permit, you must provide evidence that you have arranged accommodation in the Netherlands. It is therefore important that you make arrangements as early as possible.
You can fulfil this ‘proof of accommodation’ requirement by either submitting documents to show that you have arranged accommodation in the private sector or with friends/family, or by applying for housing on time via the university Housing Office.
More details can be found on our visa/residence permit webpage.
