Housing and Cost of Living

Finding good, affordable accommodation can be a problem in the Netherlands, especially in Amsterdam. Therefore we strongly advised you to apply for accommodation well in advance. The International Office of VU University Amsterdam is able to provide accommodation for short-stay foreign visitors (including PhD's and Post docs) at the university. The minimum period of rent is 1 month, with a maximum of 12 months. (Guests can apply for a second year of accommodation.)
Accommodation consists of furnished rooms, most with private facilities. The number of rooms and apartments is limited, so we cannot guarantee to find accommodation for everyone. Nevertheless, the International Office does its utmost to find suitable accommodation.

On the VU University website you can find all information about how to apply for accommodation.
