Talent Square

Reserved Accommodation

The reserved options are carefully chosen by the University. We have reserved rooms at our preferred suppliers for a part of our first year international students. Be sure to reserve the rooms as soon as you can, because in the past rooms are often filled up rather quickly. In previous years only 30% of all first-year international students were able to book a room by a preferred supplier.

We have different housing options for degree students and exchange students.

  • There is a limited availability.
  • Our preferred suppliers offer rooms for 6 months (for exchange students) or 1 year (for full-year exchange students and Degree students) with fixed contract dates

    Talent Square is a building in the centre of Tilburg close to the shops, the train station and other public transport options. You’ll find around 700 accommodations for both international and Dutch students in this building.

    Shortstay vs Longstay accommodation


    Talent Square has 250 rooms reserved for first year international students of Tilburg University, also referred to as shortstay accommodations.

    Besides the short stay accommodation Talent Square also has approximately 450 long stay studio-apartments for both Dutch and International students (registration time based and paid).
