Tell us how you want to live! Complete the housing survey students 2021

8 April 2021

As a student you are looking for pleasant, affordable and safe housing in the city where you study. This may sound simple, but things are different in practice. If you want to get your own room in your student city, you are often dealing with waiting times, high rents and (too) small rooms at locations you would actually prefer not to live. The student housing providers are doing something about this. They will be constructing affordable student rooms at locations where you do want to live and take your housing needs into account. To realize this they need your input.

Due to COVID-19 you may continue to live in your home country while remotely attending college or university in the Netherlands. Also in this case your housing preferences are of great importance.

We are conducting a survey to find out how many students will be studying where in the coming years and how these students want to live. This survey is carried out in collaboration with the Ministry of the Interior, colleges and universities. If you want to contribute to more and better suited student housing, please participate in the survey.

To participate you can click on the following link:

The questionnaire consists of about 40 questions and takes around 10 minutes. You can fill in the questionnaire up to April 23 using your smartphone, tablet or computer.

Win prizes

To make it even more fun, you have the chance to win great prizes:

  • Airpods Pro with wireless charging case (worth € 279)
  • The North Face Base Camp Duffelbag - Large (worth € 135)
  • 2x pimp your room with the Ikea gift card (worth € 50)
  • 4x gift card (worth € 25)

The results of the housing needs survey will be processed along with information from other sources in the Student Housing Report. Thanks to this report we will know how many students will be living in the various student cities in the upcoming years and especially how they would like to live. This knowledge is used to determine the required number and type of student housing per city and then adjust the building plans for the coming years.
