The Hague University does not provide student accommodation but they are happy to help students find a room through DUWO, a housing agency specialized in renting reasonably priced furnished rooms to international students.

Like anywhere else, room prices are dictated by size, location and facilities. Newly arrived students starting an exchange program are the first to qualify for a reserved room.


Visa information

Canadian citizens do not require a visa but they do require a residence permit to stay in Holland for more than three months.

A residence permit is applied for at the Dutch Immigration and Naturalization Service (IND) within three working days after your arrival in the Netherlands.  The IND will place a sticker in your passport confirming your residence status, and a note that you are/are not allowed to work and that you do/do not require a work permit to work.

After two to three weeks, you will receive a formal decision from the IND regarding your residence status.
