Accommodation

Home Away From Home

Get comfortable

Finding accommodation in Amsterdam yourself is difficult and expensive. Therefore we highly recommend to use our accommodation service. We offer four different accommodation options in different parts of Amsterdam. Room availability depends on the session(s) you attend.

Off-campus option Hotel Jansen is a 10 minute bike-ride or 30 minute walk away from the university. The boutique style student 'hotel' warmly welcomes visitors from all parts of the globe. Hotel Jansen has a cozy (or as the Dutch say gezellig) vibe to make you feel at home easily. The staff is very friendly and approachable. The building consists of six floors, each with a unique design representing a different area of Amsterdam. Your room is approximately 18m2, has a private bathroom, small fridge, a desk and a comfortable bed. Bed linen and kitchen utensils are included. A large ‘club room’ with kitchen and amenities is to be shared with the rest of your floor which, most likely, will be summer school friends. You can enjoy delicious meals at Hotel Jansen's very own restaurant Mama's. Often it is possible to extend your stay at Hotel Jansen with extra nights. Contact booking@hoteljansen.nl to find out the possibilities. 

  • Available in session 1, 2 and 3
  • Private room and bathroom, with small fridge
  • Shared kitchen
  • A bit further from the university - getting a bike is highly recommended!
  • €550 per session (14 nights, Saturday-Saturday)
