Types of accommodation available via the HAS Accommodation Service
 

  • Student apartments managed by the university in Den Bosch
    HAS University of Applied Sciences does not have a campus, but does have a limited number of room available for first year international students in Den Bosch in apartments close to the university (within 2 km).
    You can stay in the room until the end of your first academic year (the end of July). This means that towards the end of the final term year, you will need to find your own accommodation for your second year. The International Office can provide you with information on where to look. All accommodation offered via the university is furnished and non-smoking.

    Note: If you decide to rent accommodation offered via the university, you will receive a sub tenancy agreement and invoice from the International Office to cover the deposit and the first month’s rent. You need to pay this invoice within 10 working days.

    In principle, rooms offered via the university are available for you to move in from 18 August. Although this date is subject to change, so please check with the Accommodation Office before you come to Den Bosch. Prices range from €420 to € 550 per calendar month (including energy costs and internet).

  • Privately owned rooms and student houses
    All privately owned accommodation offered via the HAS Accommodation Service is checked by HAS University of Applied Sciences and meet our minimum standards.
    This includes accommodation managed by individual landlords as well as agency properties. Prices for furnished accommodation range from € 400 - € 550 (including energy costs and internet).
     
  • Rooms sub-let by HAS students during their internship or minor abroad
    Sometimes, HAS students sub-let their room to new international students while they are away on their internship or minor abroad.
    Rooms are furnished and prices range from € 350 - € 500 (including energy costs and internet).
