Living in Maastricht
Will you be moving to Maastricht, or will you keep living where you live now? These pages will tell you more about the things you'll need to arrange.
Is there a housing shortage in Maastricht?
That depends on the time of year you start your search. In general, the student housing market in Maastricht gets busier every year. In August/September and January/February, the supply of available rooms can be very limited, so start your search as early as possible, even in May. Otherwise, you may not be able to find suitable accommodation at all.
Besides, it is much better if you have sorted out your accommodation during the summer months. This way, you can experience and enjoy the city before your studies begin.
So, again, be sure to start your housing search as soon as possible! That means well before you come to Maastricht. If you don’t, you may end up wasting valuable time on finding a room, which may severely affect your studies.
And please remember that arranging for your housing in Maastricht is your own responsibility. Maastricht University is unable to offer student housing. We can only give you some advice.
