Housing

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. Unfortunately, NHTV Breda 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 €300 to €500 per calendar month. However, you will most commonly find rooms to rent for around € 400.

Click for rooms

If you want to find a good place to live in time, NHTV encourages you to subscribe to Klik voor Kamers (Click for rooms). This is a joint initiative of the three housing corporations in Breda: Laurentius, Singelveste Alleewonen and WonenBreburg. You can register (free of charge) and find a room through their website www.clickforrooms.nl.

Finding Accommodation

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, Housing Anywhere and Click for rooms. Check the International Student Housing Manual.

Non-EU students

NHTV has an arrangement with housing corporations Singelveste Alleewonen and WonenBreburg that 50 rooms will be available for NON-EU International NHTV students in the academic year 2018-2019 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 at NHTV, which is one semester or one year. Extension will not be possible. Once you have been accepted for a study programme at NHTV, you will be provided with personal login details around July for the website of Student Rooms Breda, www.studentroomsbreda.com, where you can find and select a room.

Please note that there are more students than rooms available and the rooms will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.

Further information

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. The rooms that are offered are not furnished (no fixtures, curtains, carpets, etc.). Please keep this in mind when you rent a room.
