Wittenborg is working hard to support students with finding suitable accommodation in Amsterdam; however, this is not a straightforward process. The responsibility to find a room in Amsterdam ultimately lies with the student. Alternatively, Wittenborg can arrange Student Housing in Apeldoorn. The distance between the Amsterdam campus and Apeldoorn is around 1.5 hours by train and costs around 17 euro one way (2019 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, Zandaam, Hoofddorp or Haarlem, etc. The Netherlands has an advanced public transport system (train, tram, metro, and bus) so it is convenient to travel around the area. Wittenborg Amsterdam campus is only 7-10 minutes' walking distance from the Amsterdam Bijlmer Arena train, metro and bus station.

If you are interested in staying with a local family, please contact our student representative via firstname.lastname@example.org to check availability.
