It goes without saying that in the case of co-living, we cannot check-in/check-out too late as we have to take the privacy and living pleasure of other housemates into consideration. 

  • Can I stay even though I am not a student?

    Only students can book accommodation through Student Housing The Hague. Proof of your tie to an educational establishment is required prior to booking your accommodation.

  • Are pets allowed?

    Yes, pets are allowed when booking a non-shared accommodation (independent living space) or studio.

    Pets are not allowed when renting a room in shared accommodations. This is because there are different opinions between the tenants regarding pets. Even if the tenants would agree, it will be too hard to keep up as the duration of stays differs and the tenant after may be allergic to pets and such. To keep our accommodations available to as many students as possible, we have decided to not allow pets when booking a single room.

  • Is there somewhere I can store my bike?

    It is only allowed to store a bike in a designated area such as a garden, barn or storage. This designated area should be reachable without bringing your bike into the accommodation itself.



  • Can I stay if I am under 18 years old?

    If you’re between 16 and 18 years old, you can stay at any of our Dutch properties. All you have to do is hand in a note at check-in with a signature from a parent, stating that they agree to let you stay unsupervised. Unfortunately, if you have not reached the age of 16 yet, staying at our accommodations is not possible.


  • Can I bring my own furniture in the accommodation?

    Yes, you can. Just be aware that some furniture may be attached to floors and walls, so it cannot be moved. Also, note that you’re not allowed to make holes in the wall. Your own furniture needs to be removed when checking out.

    Appliances (such as your own washing machines, dryers, heaters or fridges) are not allowed!

  • Is there bed linen and towels in my accommodation?

    Bed linen and towels are not included. Easily order bed linen here or bring them yourself.

  • Is cleaning included?

    Cleaning is not included. If you need cleaning services, you can find one yourself or book one with us. 

  • Can two people stay in one room?

    In general, it is not possible for two people to stay in one room unless otherwise mentioned in the advertisement.


  • Can you reserve a room for me?

    We work on a first-come, first-served basis which means that the first person who signs the rental agreement and meets the financial obligations gets the room. We do not reserve or hold any accommodations on request.

  • Are (online) viewings possible?

    Unfortunately, we can't schedule individual video viewings. You can attend the group viewing or watch the video viewing of the accommodation once available on the website.

    Group viewings are held as soon as the accommodations are vacant and available. However, due to the high demand for accommodations, many accommodations are booked before the availability date and therefore are real-life viewings not always possible. 

  • Is registration at the municipality possible?

    Registration is mandatory for all stays longer than four months. Dutch law does not require registration for any stays shorter than four months (short-term). 

    We do not offer registration on short-term rooms because of several reasons, but the main reason is that of the administrative hassle like taxes, and the de-registration process. Therefore, short-stay rooms are often more favourable priced, and they include tourist taxes. 

  • How long can I stay?

    The minimum stay required for short-stay accommodations is one month and a maximum of four months. Long-stay accommodations are all stays between five and twelve months. It is not possible to renew any tenancy agreements because we want to promote the flow of the housing market.

  • There was an accommodation before on the website, but now I cannot find it, is it still available?

    All available room types for the dates you’ve selected are on our website. If you can’t find the room type you were looking for on our website, that means that it’s currently not available.

  • Is it possible to stay for a few weeks only?

    We provide accommodation for a period of at least a month. This means a stay for a few weeks (or less than one month) is not possible. It is, however, possible to book an accommodation for one month and check-in later or check-out earlier than the beginning or end date of your booking.


  • Can I pay in cash?

    No, we are a cash-free organization.

  • What payment methods are accepted?

    We accept;

    • Bank transfers (SEPA)
    • Credit cards (Visa, MasterCard, JCB, UnionPay, Discover and American Express).
    • Debit cards
    • iDEAL
    • Bancontact


    We do NOT accept PayPal

  • What are the extra fees for dependent living accommodations (rooms)?

    All stays shorter than twelve months are subject to additional fees. When terminating a tenancy agreement before the agreed end-date, extra costs are calculated pro-rata.

    The following rates and price plans apply to Dependent Living Accommodations (DLA)

    Short-stays are all stays between one and four months. The following rates apply to these periods:

    • a stay of 4 months: + €50,00 p/m
    • a stay of 3 months: + €60,00 p/m
    • a stay of 2 months: + €80,00 p/m

  • What is included in the rate?

    The prices mentioned on our listings are all excl. (unless indicated otherwise) based on a stay of one year. The price consists of the flat rate, furniture and appliances but excl—internet, utilities and taxes.

  • Which extra costs can I expect with an excl. rate?

    When the price is excl, it means that only the monthly fixed costs are included, such as flat rate and furniture. You can expect an extra amount of around €90,00 (private bedrooms) for advanced payments such as Internet, Taxes, gas, water, electricity and levies. Renting a whole apartment comes down to approximately €170,00. 

    These costs are different for each accommodation, but a break-down of these costs can be found in your rental agreement. 

  • Is a deposit/caution applicable?

    The deposit is a standard security fee that needs to be paid directly when making your reservation. This is to ensure that the monthly fees will be paid and other responsibilities of the agreement are performed (e.g., paying for damage caused by the tenant). The deposit equals to twice the month's rent for independent accommodations, and 750,-- EUR for independent accommodations (rooms). This will be refunded after check-out if everything is in order with the room, payments, and contractual obligations.
