Home Away From Home

Get comfortable

Finding accommodation in Amsterdam yourself is difficult and expensive. Therefore we recommend to reserve a room in one of our housing options. Even a dorm bed in a hostel will be more costly. Apply for a basic on-campus room at De Boelelaan, or enjoy a more luxurious stay at Hotel Jansen.

Located at just a 5-minute walk from the university campus and directly across Amsterdam’s business district ‘Zuidas’ lies De Boelelaan. Here you will enjoy a furnished private room, shared bathroom and shared kitchen with 5-7 other summer school students. Your private room will come furnished. Bed linen and kitchen utensils are provided. You can connect to the internet by purchasing or bringing your own router or by using internet cables. Please note that the bedrooms are not standardized and differ in size and layout. There are two showers, two toilets and one washer/dryer per floor. Laundry facilities are free. When you apply for this housing option, please keep in mind that it is necessary to arrive on Saturday during the official arrival hours as there is no reception available on Sunday. It is not possible to extend your stay at De Boelelaan should you want to add some extra days to your stay in Amsterdam.

  • No additional nights possible, check-in only during official arrival hours!

€490 per session (14 nights, Saturday-Saturday)
