Finding a student room / housing in Amsterdam can be a challenge. Ask any Amsterdam local resident or student how to find accommodation and you will discover that it is quite difficult to find something. Unfortunately, we cannot really help you out with this issue, but what we can do to help you though is give you a list of websites you could check out.

The most useful websites are the UvA and AUAS (Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences) housing websites. If you apply early, they give you a much better chance to find a room than any Dutch student could have. Furthermore, you will also find some very useful tips and tricks on how to find a room in Amsterdam that fits your needs.

AUAS Housing

As mentioned already, ISN cannot really help you with finding student accommodation. However, we did set up a Facebook page where many students post available rooms for subletting or people looking for a roommate.

ASVA

The ASVA is a student run organization just like ISN, and they also give tips and tricks regarding student housing in Amsterdam. They can also help you out in case you do not trust certain housing ads, and they can also function as a mediator and even have a couple of student accommodations available every year.

Last but not least, here are two links to the main student housing organizations of Amsterdam (DUWO and De Key); if you have a room in Amsterdam there is a good chance it is with one of these organizations. These webpages will help you set up or give you more information about the accommodation you will be staying in. Representatives of DUWO and De Key will also be present at the UvA and AUAS pick-up day at the start of the semester. Here, you will get your room key if you have already arranged your accommodation.
