Housing facilities

There are two ways to find suitable housing: through university housing or through the private market

University housing

Ghent University has several student residences throughout the city. They offer cheap and safe housing in a community atmosphere. All rooms are furnished and have sanitary facilities (toilets and showers). There are communal kitchens. Monthly rent is about 380-450 EUR and is all-inclusive (water, heating, electricity and linen). During the academic year there is a student restaurant either in the residence or in its immediate vicinity. Please note that the study programme is not involved in the University housing. University housing is under the full and independent authority of the University’s housing department.

Private housing

Another possibility is to rent a room on the private market. Prices vary roughly between 380 euro and 550 euro per month. To find private housing, you can ask for assistance at the UGent housing department (see below). Of course you are free to check the private market and make your own arrangements. Please note that if you arrange your own accommodation, the university cannot provide assistance in assuring your reservation.
