Looking for student accommodation in the Netherlands?

Are you currently not living in the Netherlands, but you want to study here? One of the first tasks to tackle is finding a place to live. You can choose between varying types of accommodation. These include a room in a student residence or independent accommodation, such as an apartment or a studio. Of course, you can also decide to rent a house in the private sector.

Finding a place to live in a “new” country isn’t always that easy or straightforward, but HelloLaw can make sure you land on your feet by helping you with the small print in your rental contract and any possible pitfalls when dealing with a rental agency. This includes information about Dutch social housing and housing associations.
