It can be difficult to find suitable accommodation in Maastricht. PhD fellows are advised to come to Maastricht prior to the start of the programme (sometime during August) to look into the possibilities for housing themselves. All PhD fellows must finance their own living costs. The average monthly rent for a modest student room (in a student house) in the Maastricht area is approximately 300-400 euros. One-bedroom apartments are between 350-450 euros. Unlike many other Dutch cities, Maastricht does not have a long waiting list for student housing, but still we advise you to start looking for accommodation before the beginning of the academic year.
Maastricht Housing is the official housing agency for Maastricht University, Zuyd University of Applied Sciences and the Jan van Eyck Academy.
For a one-time € 35 fee, you get access to our platform maastrichthousing.nl. Here you will find the vast range of offers with more than 10,000 living spaces.
They have the largest selection of student housing from the housing corporations, Guesthouse UM and private landlords.
Guesthouse UM offers short-term accommodation consisting of furnished rooms spread over several locations in Maastricht. The offer of a total of 900 rooms is specialised per type of tenant (the offer for bachelor and master students is different than for exchange students) and there are both single and double rooms and studios available.
