In Holland, students usually do not live on campus but have their own room. Therefore ArtEZ doesn't have its own student dormitories and cannot provide accommodation for students.
We advise you to start your orientation on housing before coming to the Netherlands, because finding good, affordable accommodation can be a problem in Arnhem, Zwolle and Enschede.
Here are few reliable housing websites:
Good to know:
Before you take on a room, make sure you check what bills are included in the rent, as this may have a large impact on your budget. Some accommodations include gas, electricity, TV and Internet in the rent, for others you are expected to pay them separately.
Furnished or unfurnished?
Find out if a room is furnished or unfurnished. The quality can vary greatly and furnishings can range from just a bed and a chair to a fully-equipped room with internet. If you decide to go for an unfurnished room, you can buy cheap furniture at second-hand shops in your city.
Check your contract
Make sure you read and understand your rental contract before signing it. Ask for a rental contract in English. Check what you are allowed to do with your room, for example, you may not be allowed to paint the walls. Also, ask who you should speak to if you have a problem, for example a blocked drain.
If you have a complaint about your accommodation, you should speak first to the person directly responsible.
Sometimes, ArtEZ students that go abroad for an exchange or internship rent out their rooms temporarily via Facebook. Read more about student housing in Holland at Study in Holland.
