Find accommodation via Maastricht Housing
Maastricht Housing is the official housing agency for Maastricht University, Zuyd University of Applied Sciences and the Jan van Eyck Academy. The main objective is to provide mediation between students, the UM Guesthouse, housing corporations, and private landlords and therewith supporting students and official employees in finding qualitative and affordable housing.
If you’d like to make sure early on that you’ll have a place to stay during your time in Maastricht, the rooms/studios offered at the Maastricht University Guesthouse may be the thing for you. These rooms can be booked well in advance, so that you won’t have to worry about whether you’ll have accommodation. The rooms are fully furnished, so you only need to bring your own personal items. More information can be found on the Maastricht Housing website: https://www.maastrichthousing.com
Make sure you book a room in time, because the Guesthouse is often already fully booked at the beginning of July.
Unlike many other cities in the Netherlands, Maastricht does not have long waiting lists for student housing. It is, however, very important that you start looking for a room in time. Keep in mind that the closer it gets to the start of the academic year, the longer the waiting lists will become and the harder it will be to find affordable accommodation.
