Arranging your accommodation
Tilburg is a popular university city in the Netherlands. Because of this, the demand for student housing is high and as many Dutch universities, Tilburg University does not own on-campus 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. We advise you to ensure your accommodation before your arrival and start searching for a room several months before your start.
Since we understand the struggles of the accommodation process, our Housing Office supports you in your search when and where needed. Lots of information and useful links can be found on our website. If you have specific questions with regards to the reserved accommodation, the private market, your rental contract and so on, please contact us via e-mail or phone.
Getting started on your search can be very overwhelming, therefore we have made a step by step plan which can help with narrowing your search.
Please spread your options by exploring both the private market and reserved accommodation (if available).
1. Decide what type of accommodation suits you best
2. Decide where you would like to live
3. Find your new home in the reserved accommodation or the private market section
4. Register at city hall and get your BSN number
The reserved options are carefully chosen by the University. We have reserved rooms for our incoming students so that you have easy access to reserving accommodation before your arrival. Reserved accommodation is only available for students starting end of August.
Would you rather find a room or a studio on the private market? Then you can look online for accommodation yourself. In the private market section you can find a lot of useful information.
