It can be difficult to find suitable accommodation in Maastricht. PhD fellows are advised to come to Maastricht prior to the start of the course (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.
