Accommodation in ’s-Hertogenbosch

Avans University of Applied Sciences does not own student accommodation. Instead, we have partnered with the housing association, Brabant Wonen, in Den Bosch and introduced an accommodation reservation website:

Furnished student rooms

A limited number of furnished student rooms are available for international Avans students.

You can book a furnished room if:

  • You are a first year student. These rooms are offered to first-year students only, to help them commence their studies.
  • 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.

What you need to know about these rooms:

  • Rooms are fully furnished.
  • At Onderwijsboulevard you will have a private bedroom and shared facilities with other students, usually international Avans students.
  • At The Fuik you will have your own studio.
  • Rental prices vary but you will pay no more than circa €700 per month. This includes water, electricity and gas.
  • Please note that if you require accommodation for a longer duration, you will need to independently search for a subsequent room.
