This is only possible for students who need to return to their home institution for the second semester in January. In some cases less than 7.5 ECTS are awarded. These are tailor-made solutions and it’s the student’s responsibility to make arrangements with the instructor.

    Housing through Short Stay Solutions can only be rented for a full semester period.

  • Housing and Student Life

    Is housing assistance available? How do students apply, and is it guaranteed?

    YES, due to a large number of students and shortage of rooms it is usually very hard to find housing in Utrecht. Therefore Utrecht University offers guest students assistance with their housing through Short Stay Solutions. This independent housing corporation (SSH) makes housing arrangements upon request and under certain conditions. Information about the procedure will be sent to student after acceptance by UU

    Housing options

    International student housing/ Dutch student housing/private landlord. www.uu.nl/exchange - housing 

    Housing Website and Contact Person(s)

    Do students apply for housing with their regular application or is it separate?

    The housing offer will be open for reservation about 3 months before the semester/ academic year commences. Register as soon as possible, because rooms are allocated on first come first served base.

    What kinds of health facilities are available at the university?

    Academic hospital, student psychological service. Students usually visit a general practitioner first. Upon arrival students receive information about doctors, dentists and pharmacies.

    Are internships available?

    In general, no. Sometimes there are possibilities, for example: internships for students studying Dutch Language and Literature at their home university

    Are student jobs available/allowed?

    Yes, but non-EU/EEA students require a work permit and are restricted a maximum of 10 hours per week OR 3 months  fulltime in the summer (June – August). The work permit must be applied for after the residence permit has been approved, which takes approximately two months.
