Studying and living in The Hague

Living in The Hague, the international City of Peace and Justice

As a student of International Studies, you can choose to live in either the city of The Hague or Leiden. International students are accommodated by the University in apartments in The Hague. Visit the University’s housing website for more information on the possibilities. Here you may also ask for assistance in finding housing. Interested in personal experiences? Here is how some of our students found their room through the university or by themselves (pdf).

International Students may use all of the University facilities in both cities, such as the libraries, the sport clubs and the student associations.

Testimonial Maria Barosso living and studying in the hague

Do you like The Hague?
The Hague is a vibrant city with some fantastic cafés and it’s a very open place, so you’re always mixing with people from all kinds of different backgrounds. I’ve made some great friends, and I learn new things from them every day. A programme like International Studies attracts people from all kinds of different backgrounds. Most of my friends I also hang out with during and after classes; we eat together, do nice things together and – of course – we go out in the evenings together, too.
