Arranging your accommodation
Tilburg is a popular university city in the Netherlands and the demand for student housing is high. We advise you to start searching for a room several months before the start of your studies. Without accommodation we urge you not to travel to Tilburg. Our website offers a lot of useful information and tips.
Spread your options by exploring both the private market and reserved accommodation. If you have specific questions with regards to the reserved accommodation, the private market, your rental contract, housing allowance, safety tips, please contact the Housing Office via e-mail or phone.
As many Dutch universities, Tilburg University does not own accommodation. That means that we do not offer, or guarantee student housing. It is your own responsibility and number one priority to find accommodation after being accepted.
The reserved accommodation options are carefully chosen by the University. There is a limited availability. Our preferred suppliers offer rooms for 6 months or 1 year with fixed contract dates.More information
