THUAS also cooperates with Housing Anywhere, a free student‐to‐student housing platform offering rooms on sublease, students‐for‐students. Students from educational institutions in The Hague and other Dutch university towns who for instance go on exchange can offer their room for sublease, and prospective students can apply for rooms offered. For information, please check:
The Student Hotel offers a new student accommodation option at a 5-minute walk distance from the THUAS campus. Dutch and international students live together. You can stay up to one year. The Student Hotel provides fully furnished rooms with private and shared kitchens, a gym, bar-restaurant, library and study rooms. With your rent comes a bike as well. You can check out the short term and longer-term options at
The Student Hotel website.
You could also try the
private market. This accommodation may sometimes be cheaper, however generally it is non‐furnished, and often utilities, taxes and internet have to be paid separately. Also, please note Dutch students may receive a substantial rent subsidy not available to non‐nationals. Please be cautious when dealing with private landlords, in particular related to advance cash payments.
