Wittenborg is continuously looking for possibilities to support students with finding suitable accommodation in Amsterdam. However, the responsibility for finding a room in Amsterdam ultimately lies with the student. It should be noted that finding student accommodations in Amsterdam is very difficult at the moment due to severe housing shortage. It is, however, possible to opt for student housing in Apeldoorn. The distance between Apeldoorn and our location in Amsterdam is around 1.5 hours by train and costs around 18 euro one way (www.ns.nl).
Accommodation in Amsterdam costs around 700-1,200 euro per month, depending on the location, size and type. If you seek cheaper accommodation, you can consider the suburbs near Amsterdam, for example, Amstelveen, Almere, Zaandam, Hoofddorp or Haarlem, etc. The Netherlands has an advanced public transport system (train, tram, metro, and bus), which makes it convenient to travel around the area. Wittenborg’s Amsterdam campus is only a 7-10 minute walk from the Amsterdam Bijlmer Arena train, metro and bus station.
Please contact our Amsterdam housing partners below to arrange your accommodation at the earliest possible moment.
