To assist international students in finding accommodation, the University of Amsterdam (UvA) has agreements with various housing corporations. But how easy is it to find housing in Amsterdam?
‘Finding a suitable accommodation in Amsterdam while you are still in your home country can be challenging. Several students move to better flats via Facebook groups after they arrive in Amsterdam.
