Housing for PhDs and international researchers

UvA Staff Housing

UvA Staff Housing is a service to help PhDs and other researchers from outside the Netherlands to find housing in Amsterdam. We can arrange accommodation for a period of one month to four years.

There is a severe housing shortage in Amsterdam. If you are eligible for accommodation arranged through UvA Staff Housing, you are strongly advised to use our service. Be aware that because of the difficult housing market, we may not be able to satisfy specific requests related to flat size, location or layout or the starting date of your rental contract.
