Accommodation in ’s-Hertogenbosch

Finding suitable and affordable accommodation in Den Bosch is a challenge. Student accommodation in Den Bosch is scarce. Therefore this page provides you with information about renting a room during your period of study.

Avans University of Applied Sciences does not own student accommodation. Instead, we collaborate with housing associations and letting agencies to make sure our students find suitable housing. Please read on to find out how you can secure a room in 's-Hertogenbosch.

Avans University of Applied Sciences has partnered with one of the housing associations in Den Bosch to launch an accommodation reservation website: On this website you will find available rooms in or around Den Bosch. To access, please register your details and pay the registration fee of €10. It is your own responsibility to obtain accommodation via this platform. If you cannot rent accommodation via, you will have to look for accommodation yourself via other channels.

Unfurnished rooms

You can apply for an unfurnished room. If more students are interested in a particular room, allocation will be decided by lottery.

Furnished rooms

In addition to the unfurnished rooms there are also a number of furnished student rooms available. Please note that there are only a limited number of these available, which means not every student can be accommodated here.

You can book a furnished room if:

  • you have been accepted on an eligible Avans programme. Please read on for the list of eligible programmes.
  • you have been selected for housing by the programme coordinator. The email address for your school is listed below. Note that being selected does not guarantee you a furnished room.
  • there are still rooms available. They are allotted on a first come, first served basis.

Details about the furnished rooms

  • Furnished rooms are located throughout the city. Please check the map below.
  • Rooms are fully furnished.
  • You will have a private room and share kitchen and bathroom facilities with other students, usually international students.
  • Rental prices vary but you will pay no more than € 625 per month. This includes water, electricity and gas.
