Breda has a growing number of students, which is why accommodation in Breda can be scarce. For students it can be difficult to find a suitable place to live. Here are some tips for finding a place to stay.
Unfortunately, Breda University of Applied Sciences has no campus or student rooms of its own and, therefore, it will be your own responsibility to find accommodation in Breda. Rental prices for a student room in Breda vary from €400 to €600 per calendar month. Fortunately BUas is researching several new options for the academic year 2022-2023. If we have news, we will make sure to share this with all future students.
It is encouraged to start your search early for the best chance of finding accommodation that fits your needs. Nowadays most students find student housing by the use of Facebook and Click for rooms (see the housing manual for more information).
Click for rooms
If you want to find a good place to live in time, you can subscribe to Klik voor Kamers (Click for rooms). This is a joint initiative of the three housing corporations in Breda: Laurentius, Alwel and WonenBreburg. You can register (free of charge) and find a room through their website www.klikvoorkamers.nl/en/.
Please note: To register with Klik voor Kamers you need proof of enrolment as an Breda University of Applied Sciencesstudent. You can request this by sending an e-mail via email@example.com. Mention your full name and student number in your e-mail please.
We have an arrangement with housing corporations Singelveste, Alwel and WonenBreburg that 65 rooms will be available for NON-EU Breda University of Applied Sciencesstudents in the academic year 2021-2022 and 30 rooms for NON-EU exchange students. These rooms are furnished and have fixed contract dates. These contract dates cannot be changed and the contract will end after the period of your stay, which is one semester or one year. Extension will not be possible. Once you have been accepted for a study programme at Breda University of Applied Sciences, you will be provided with personal login in the first week of July for the website where you can book these rooms.
Please note that there are more students than rooms available and the rooms will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.
Rooms in the Netherlands are mostly single rooms, with several rooms in one house shared by a group of students or young people. You share spaces like the living room (if available), the kitchen and the bathroom. Most rooms that are offered are not furnished (no fixtures, curtains, carpets, etc.). Please keep this in mind when you rent a room. If you have any questions left, please send a mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
