For whom?

The rooms on this website are only offered to international students of Breda University of Applied Sciences. Exchange (Erasmus) students are offered accommodation for the duration of their stay in Breda (one semester or one year). International students coming from a NON European country pursuing a Bachelor or (Research) Master degree in Breda are offered housing for the first year of their studies only. International students who want to stay longer than one year in Breda should check-out the information ‘extending your time in Breda’. If you have been accepted as an (full year) exchange student or a new degree-seeking coming from a NON European country (Bachelor or [Research] Master) student you will automatically receive the log-in details to the reservation system midst November.

Location of the rooms
All rooms on offer are located in the city of Breda, located in different neighborhoods. Since the most common way of transportation for Dutch students is a bicycle, all rooms are located within 15-20 minutes cycling distance of the university campus. Also the city centre, where the going out area is located, is perfectly in reach on your bike.

First come, first serve!
The number of rooms is limited. Therefore, we advise full-year exchange students who want to book a room via studentroomsbreda.com to make a reservation as soon as the reservation system opens. The reservation policy is based on a “first-come, first–serve” basis. So make sure your creditcard has enough credit limit to be able to complete your payment immediately. Unfortunately studentroomsbreda.com is not able to assist you anymore once all rooms are rented out.

Extending your time in Breda
Waiting lists for student accommodation are long in most student cities in the Netherlands and unfortunately Breda is no exception! Therefore, as an international degree-seeking student, it is advisable to add your name on the waiting list of the housing companies (for example www.clickforrooms.nl) as soon as possible to be offered accommodation once your first year of accommodation has passed by.

House regulations and cleaning policy
In the Netherlands there are no standard cleaning regulations for student accommodation. Therefore, cleaning your room is fully your own responsibility. Please click here for a cleaning checklist.

Together with your housemates you are responsible for cleaning all the shared facilities. In most student houses the housemates create a cleaning schedule. In this schedule all weekly tasks are assigned to one of the housemates. In this way the tasks are equally spread. Disputes about cleaning the shared facilities are the responsibility of all housemates. Your landlord can decide to take action by ordering a cleaning company to clean-up the house after one official warning. Make no mistake, all costs will be billed upon you and your housemates and there is no discussion possible.

Integration
Your international experience will only be complete when you learn a lot about the traditions and cultures of other international students. The best way to get to know each other is by living together. In order to maximize your international experience studentroomsbreda.com stimulates integration between international students from all over the world. Living in our houses becomes a beautiful and interesting international experience!

Fair play
Our reservation system automatically creates international houses with a broad variety of cultures. This means that there will be no houses with a majority of the same nationalities.
