Application procedure

Please contact your institute’s or faculty’s housing officer to see if you are eligible for housing via UvA Staff Housing.

  • Step 2: Your application

    Your institute or faculty will send your housing application to the housing office.

    • Housing in Amsterdam is scarce. This means it may not be possible to fulfil special housing requests regarding size, location and layout. Read more about the availability of housing.
    • Once we have found a suitable accommodation, you will receive an official housing offer.
    • If you accept it, you will be asked to pay the UvA housing fee.
    • UvA Staff Housing will forward your information to the housing corporation. The housing corporation will then contact you to sign the contract
  • Step 3: Check-in/contract appointment

    • The accommodation contract
    • How to deal with maintenance or technical problems
