Accommodation

Please note!

Available student housing is limited. Please check your options as soon as possible.

Before starting your study at Fontys, you must find suitable housing. Unfortunately, it is not easy for international students to find accommodation in the Netherlands due to the housing crisis. Start your accommodation search early. Please be aware that finding a place to live is your own responsibility.

Although Fontys does not have its own campus dorms, we cooperate with several accommodations agencies and landlords (further on this website referred to as housing agencies). Through such cooperation, Fontys can provide students with guidance in finding accommodation for the first semester or academic year at Fontys. Please note that applying for accommodation through Fontys does not automatically guarantee housing and after the deadline we can't accept new applications.


Check out these tips
