Housing

Accommodation

As a student living in the Netherlands, it is necessary to have a house with valid address. Your Dutch address is required to register you as a legal resident in a Municipality. Registration in the municipality is essential to obtain a BSN or Burgerservicenummer (Social services number). The BSN facilitates any interaction with the Dutch authorities: Verifying a bank account, insurances, using the healthcare system, Studielink (Portal of the national database of the Ministry of Education, Culture, and Science) announcing a change of address, etc. It is also used to combat identity fraud and misspelled names.

You can arrange for an accommodation in the Netherlands either through help provided by TU Delft or by yourself. Please be aware of the fact that most university cities in The Netherlands have a shortage in good student accommodation. We strongly advise to make use of TU Delft’s help, to improve your chances of an available room upon your arrival in Delft. TU Delft charges a non-refundable housing fee for this help.

TU Delft has partnered with different housing agencies in the greater Delft region to offer incoming international students help in finding accommodation. BSc and Msc students are offered one-year contracts for a whole academic year only (mid-August to mid-August). BSc students who have applied for the central (governmental) selection for a Numerus Clausus BSc programme are ineligible for the TU Delft Housing Service. MSc students may decide to prolong their contract for one extra year; BSc students will need to find their own accommodation after one year. Exchange students will be offered 1 semester-contracts, with a maximum of one semester’s extension only. Cancellations during the contract period are NOT allowed.

All rooms are within a 30-minute distance to campus, by bike and/or public transport. Both private and shared student units are available. All rooms on offer meet the minimum quality standards set by TU Delft, with regards to distance to campus, inventory, facilities, rent versus surface.

As the supply of accommodation is limited, we specifically point out that all available rooms are allocated on a "first-paid, first-served" basis . We strive to accommodate all students who submit the Confirmation Statement and pay the Guarantee amount before the deadline of December 1 (Spring Semester) and July 1 (Summer Semester), but can only offer accommodation 'until stock lasts'.

Please note that student accommodations in general are single occupancy only. Students that require couples accommodation need to send an email to internationaloffice@tudelft.nl to inquire about the possibilities. Please add your 5-digit registration number to speed up the process. It will not be possible to accommodate children or pets.

Finding your own accommodation

If you want to look for accommodation on your own, we advise you to start looking for a room as soon as possible. Start now! Be aware that many student rooms in the Netherlands are rented out unfurnished.

You may find the following list useful when looking for housing. It consists of housing corporations, websites with house offerings and real estate agents in and around Delft. TU Delft does not have any affiliation with these housing organisations.
