What should I look for in housing?

We will start you off with some housing basics! Finding accommodation is the first step you need to take towards making Maastricht your new home. Maastricht has many different types of accommodation on offer, but it can always be a daunting task to find a suitable room in a new city. Realistic housing prices for students range from anything between €300 to €700 (although of course you can go above!); pay attention to whether or not the price is inclusive of gas, water and electricity (G/W/E).

You should be able to find a room within your budget if you think ahead – bear in mind that if you’re looking for something closer to the €300 mark, you should definitely start looking early. Also, to establish yourself properly in Maastricht you will most likely have to deal with three separate parties: the municipality of Maastricht, an agency or housing corporation and your (future) landlord.

Our section provides information about the housing basics and aims to answer some of the questions you might have about your current or future housing situation in Maastricht, as well as give you tips for dealing with any of the three parties. This should help you to get settled easily, so you can enjoy Maastricht without needless stress!
