If you are not offered a room through UvA student housing, or if you’re a senior student, you’ll need to find accommodation on your own. Options include renting a room in a private home, flat-sharing with other students, or staying in a student hotel.
UvA student housing is available for first-year international students and exchange students. Unfortunately, because of high demand, not everyone who applies for student housing gets a room.
Some first-year students, and all senior students, will have to look for accommodation independently.
