Live like the locals: arrange student housing in Amsterdam. Have your own private room, or share a flat with others. Enjoy cooking with other international students or eating out in the many nice restaurants or cafés. Amsterdam is easy to traverse on bicycle; you'll know your way around in no time.
If you want the full experience for your summer, choose a student housing arrangement. This information covers three options:
The AUAS Summer School starts on Monday 1 July 2019.
The AUAS Summer School has private and dormstyle rooms on offer for international students at different locations in Amsterdam. Please note, you will always be accommodated with a number of other summer school students. The housing of students of each course depends on the number of participants. We will not be able to let you know which residence you will be staying in until the day of your arrival.
Two types of rooms are offered:
Note that the student arrangements described here emphasize independent living and are therefore not hotel-standard: please do not expect hotel services such as reception, daily cleaning, indoor dining arrangements and the like. Rooms will of course be cleaned before arrival, though, and bedding and cleaning supplies are available in the room.
After having paid your Summer school fee you will be contacted by our housing agency De Key to finalise your room arrangement. The total fee you have already paid includes your housing during the summer school.
An important action is that you will be asked to pay a deposit of 75 euros. After completing your summer school, this deposit will automatically be refunded to your credit card* within 90 days after the end of your tenancy agreement.
Furthermore, you will be informed which room you will receive and how and when you can check in and check out.
*De Key will pay the refund to the credit card you paid your deposit with automatically when you booked your room. (It will not be possible to refund the deposit to another credit card or to a bank account). Damages to the accommodation will be settled with the deposit. See terms & conditions and your tenancy agreement for more information.
Residence assistants of the AUAS Summer School Support Team will be at the accommodations on Friday 28 June to welcome you, and to hand you your key. If you are planning to arrive after 23.00 hours, you are advised to book a hotel for that night. The residence assistants will not be available at that time. Students arriving on Saturday 29 or Sunday 30 June can pick up their keys during a limited timeslot on both days.
Housing is provided from Friday 28 June 14.00 hours, until 10.00 hours on Friday 12 July. Unfortunately it is not possible to prolong your stay in the accommodation. If you want to stay in Amsterdam longer, you will have to make other arrangements.
If you do not wish to make use of the housing arranged by the AUAS Summer School, you are welcome to arrange your own accommodation. There are many ways to do so. Either through airBnB, through friends, in youth hostels or hotels, or through international student boards. Please be aware that the summer is a busy time in Amsterdam, so make sure you book well in advance.
