Maastricht. City on the river Maas. Built on Roman foundations. Surrounded by green rolling hills. Famous for its cobbled streets, bustling nightlife and rich cultural scene. Not just in the city itself, but also just across the border, as Maastricht lies in the triangle formed by the Netherlands, Germany and Belgium. Luxembourg and France are within driving distance. Cities like Brussels, Liege, Aachen, Cologne and Düsseldorf, with their countless venues and museums, are only a stone's throw away. The international appeal of the city of Maastricht is enhanced by the constant influx of students from around the globe. They are drawn to Conservatorium Maastricht, its parent organisation Zuyd University of Applied Sciences, and to Maastricht University.
There is a lot of nice, small-scale student accommodation in the centre of Maastricht. A large part of it is rented and maintained by the housing corporations Woonpunt, Servatius and Maasvallei. Other accommodation is privately owned. If you are new to Maastricht, you should certainly register with Maastricht Housing. Maastricht Housing is an initiative of Maastricht University, Zuyd University of Applied Sciences and the Jan van Eyck Academy. This platform acts as an intermediary between students and all providers of student accommodation.
If you are a foreign student, we also recommend that you have a look at mymaastricht.nl and contact Jules Maastricht. This useful organisation can help you arrange all kinds of things, like housing, finances, insurance and municipal matters.
