Housing

Most exchange students book their room online at the University’s Guesthouse Maastricht for the duration of their stay. This organisation is affiliated with Maastricht University. You will have to pay a small application fee to get started but it will be a carefree experience from there on. With thousands of new students coming to Maastricht in August in preparation of the start of the academic year, there will be many others looking for a room as well. You are strongly advised to book your room as soon as you know you are coming to Maastricht.

There are 350 rooms for one or two students and 45 rooms/studios specifically for Master’s students. The main buildings are located in the vicinity of University College Maastricht and are easily accessible by bicycle or on foot. Unfortunately, UCM cannot guarantee that all students who apply for a room in the Guesthouse UM actually get a room there. Applications are processed on a first-come-first-served basis, and UCM does not have an influence on that process.

If you want a room in the Guesthouse UM, go to the Guesthouse website and select the dates of your stay, and you will get an overview of available rooms. See UM Guesthouse for additional information on booking a room in the Guesthouse. If the Guesthouse UM is fully booked, or if you prefer to stay elsewhere, you can click on the option “Private market”. Here you will find rooms offered by private landlords or commercial companies.

Warning: in case of problems, the International Relations Office at UCM cannot and will not interfere on your behalf. In case of issues or legal disputes, with the Guesthouse UM, MaastrichtHousing, or any corporations or private persons, students or landlords linked to MaastrichtHousing or otherwise, you should consult with your own lawyer or the Student Law Agency.

The main Guesthouse reception desk is located at Brouwersweg 100, which is also where most of UCM's exchange students will reside during their stay in Maastricht. The reception desk is open on weekdays between 8.30 AM and 5:00 PM. A passport copy is required for check-in, and fees are payable in cash, with credit cards (Visa, Mastercard, AmEx) or bank card.

If your arrival is after opening hours, you can still collect your room key from the security guard at the reception desk. Keep in mind however, that you will still need to complete your paperwork as soon as possible during office hours.

Abby Marie Lowe, Fall 2016 Participant
Be sure to look at the course reviews and pass rates for the classes you sign up for.

Spring 2016 Participant
Maastricht is a beautiful, picturesque town and unlike a UGA program, you have the opportunity to socialize and travel with people from all over the world. It was a great experience.

Patrick James Loeffler, Spring 2017 Participant
Really good and informative classes. Would be really hard if a student wasn't on pass/fail though
