Here's what you get when you study abroad with CEA in Amsterdam:
Students looking to stay abroad with other international students and get the benefits of shared living should pick this housing option. Students will be placed in a hotel-like building in a furnished private room. The room includes a bed, desk, chair, shelves, and a small kitchen. The residences have ample communal space inside and outside, study spaces, and shared laundry facilities. The buildings have 24-hour reception and security.
CEA Students have the option to stay with a Dutch family while abroad in Amsterdam. Get the insider local’s perspective and even practice your Dutch language while getting a truly personalized experience. Houses are easily accessible to VU Amsterdam by bike or public transportation. Each student is guaranteed an independent bedroom, with internet, a bed, a wardrobe, and a desk. Students have access to the kitchen and are invited to have dinner with the family once a week.
Summer housing is based entirely on which block session(s) students choose to enroll in. Options may include hotel, hostel and student residence. Not every option is available during every session. Our partner university VU Amsterdam does all housing placements on a first come, first serve basis, taking into consideration which sessions students will be onsite. All housing options meet CEA’s housing standards, and it is up to the student to determine which housing option and which courses are best for them. Students will be in the same housing assignment throughout their stay in Amsterdam.
Roommates vary by housing option:
Unit amenities may vary by housing option:
While CEA highly recommends that you choose one of our Amsterdam housing options provided, you also have the option to arrange independent housing. If your ideal housing scenario includes living in a particular neighborhood, having specific amenities or living with a specific person as your roommate, then independent housing could be just the ticket for you.
Use the online housing application form to request permission for this option no later than the application closure date. If your request is approved, you will receive a rebate for your housing payment, however CEA will not provide you with any assistance setting up independent housing. Keep in mind, rebates are not granted to students who move out of their CEA housing or choose to pursue independent living arrangements after the application closure date.
