Finding housing in Amsterdam is often difficult because of the high demand with regard to student accommodation, but by starting your search on time and putting in some effort, students usually succeed at finding something. Many students find accommodation by word of mouth or social media. First-year Bachelor's students who live more than 40 kilometres away from Amsterdam are given priority, which greatly increases their odds of finding accommodation.
