We are aware of the student housing shortage in The Netherlands, especially in Amsterdam. We are trying our best to guarantee rooms for our students. However, we strongly recommend you register for our program at least three months before the start date so that we have enough time to book your housing in advance.  

Housing in Breukelen  

On campus you’ll find 5 student housing buildings. These have been named after people who have made considerable contributions to Nyenrode and its success: Postma, Weijer, Kuneman, Klaasesz and Philips (subdivided into Roeterink I & II, Riemsdijk and Otten). There are 295 rooms and three-room types (Furnished/Unfurnished/Kitchen).   

The campus is within walking/cycling distance from the town of Breukelen, offering various retail options – from supermarket and optician to a flower shop and pharmacist. Retail hours are usually between 10:00 and 18:00, although supermarkets offer extended opening hours. You can also enjoy some cozy cafés and restaurants.  


To ensure you feel at home on campus, we offer a number of facilities to make sure you can live, work and relax in comfort. Among the facilities at our campus, you’ll find a living room, a student restaurant (Mensa), cubicles for project and group work, a laundromat, an outdoor kitchen for barbecue, and various sports accommodations. Please check the F&Q regarding the campus facilities to learn more.  


Housing allowance (Huurtoeslag) can be granted based on the calculation and advice from the housing department. After deducting the allowance, the average monthly fee of the housing is around €300 - €500.
