A: For the Fall semester 2012 (start lectures 3 September 2012): deadline is 5 June 2012 Q: After 5 June 2012; can I still apply for accommodation?

A: After the deadline of 5 June 2012: you still can apply for accommodation, however; you will have to pay the entire HvA housing fee, you will not get a discount. If you submit your housing application before the 5 June 2012 (5 pm CET/ GMT+1), you will receive a discount on the HvA housing fee. We advise you not to wait until the last minute to submit your application. If you encounter problems with the application just before the deadline, we might not be able to help you on time. The HvA housing fee for one semester will be reduced to €265 (instead of €315) and to €450 for two semesters (instead of € 525).

Only if we are not able to offer you a room, we will refund the HvA-housingfee to you. We expect to be able to refund the fee no sooner than December 2012. However, if you have received a room offer via the HvA and do not accept it, the HvA housing -fee will not be refunded. It might be possible that you receive a room offer of another type of room which you signed in for. Even if you do not accept this offer, the fee will not be refunded.





Q: What about this HvA housing fee?

[HvA is the abbreviation for Hogeschool van Amsterdam. In English, our name is Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences.] A: Students renting accommodation via the HvA will be charged a housing fee. This housing fee is required to cover the HvA's costs in providing the housing service to international students. Before you submit this housing application, you will have to pay the HvA housing fee via credit card. In the online application (EMBARK), you will be informed about the payment procedure. If you do not already have a credit card, it is necessary to acquire one in order to complete the payment procedure.

If you can not obtain a credit card, you may use the credit card of a relative.

For one semester the HvA housing fee is € 315. For two semesters or a full year the HvA fee is € 525.

The HvA housing-fee is non-refundable. If you need a visa to study at our institute and your visa is not granted (on time), the HvA housing-fee will not be refunded to you. Also, if you decide to cancel your exchange programme at our institute, the fee will not be refunded in any case.

Please note that all payments will be made in US dollars corresponding to the Euro amount. Due to currency fluctuations, the amount might be slightly lower or higher.

Q: What do I need for the application for accommodation (online registration in Embark)?

A: for the online registration in Embark, you need the following:

• Internet

• Credit card. If you do not already have a credit card, it is necessary to acquire one in order to complete the payment procedure. If you can not obtain a credit card, you may use the credit card of a relative.

• Login code, which you will receive from the International Centre of te School of Economics and Management. If you do not have this log in code yet, please contact the International Centre at incoming.sem@hva.nl or c.c.c.rijniers@hva.nl Q: In the online registration system (Embark), they ask for my HvA student number. What do I have to fill in?

A: If you have not received a student number yet, please list the following number: 5555 (or leave the box empty) Q: What is the rental period?

A: Please note that the rental periods for HvA and UvA students are always fixed periods. We strongly advise you not to choose one semester if your study has the duration of two semesters or more. If you choose only one semester we cannot guarantee you an extension. In case an extension is granted, you will have to pay the HvA housing-fee twice. Therefore, please select the period corresponding with the duration of your study with a maximum of one year. The short stay housing which is offered to you is only available for a maximum of 1 year. This means that after a year, you must leave the room. For Fall 2012, the fixed rental period is 17 August 2012-28 January 2013For Spring 2013, the rental period will be 30 January 2013-5 July 2013 or 14 August 2013. If you prefer to stay during the Summer break, you can choose 14 August 2013 as end date.

Q: What kind of rooms are available?

A: You can choose between the 2 following options. Please note that you always will have your own bedroom. Shared bedrooms are not available in the studentbuildings of the School of Economics and Management, nor can we offer apartments for couples or for students with children.

1. A single room with shared facilities (then you have your own bedroom, but you share the facilities;

bathroom, kitchen and toilet with 1, 2 or 3 other students)

2. A single room with private facilities (limited availability); then you have your own bedroom and your own facilities; own bathroom, kitchen and toilet) Q: After my registration (and after I have paid for the HvA housing fee), do I have the guarantee that I have a room in Amsterdam in Fall 2012?

A: We will do our utmost to provide all applicants with a room. In previous years, we have been able to provide all applicants with housing. Nonetheless, if the number of applications exceeds the number of rooms, you must find accommodation yourself. We cannot give a room guarantee, even if you have paid your HvA-housingfee is paid before 5 June 2012.

The student accommodation facilitated by the AUAS / School of Economics and Management to international students is for NEW international students. New exchange students will have priority to new bachelor students, until 5 June. If an exchange student registers after 5 June, (s)he will no longer have priority to bachelor students. After 5 June; first come, first served and we only have a limited number of rooms!!

Q: How much do I have to pay for my room?

The room prices vary from approximately € 350 to € 600 per month.

The rent depends on the type of room (shared or private facilities), but also on the size of the room and on which floor the room is. Rooms on the ground floor are more expensive then rooms on, for example, the 6th floor.

Q: What is the housing corporation offers me a room which is too expensive for me or if the room is located in a neighborhood where I do not want to live?

A: Please note that you only get 1 room offer! We will deal with reservations according to the order in which they are received. If your preferred room type is not available anymore you will receive a similar offer. But it is not possible to decline the room offer and then ask for another room.

Q: Where in Amsterdam are the student accommodation buildings located?

A: Most of the Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences /School of Economics and Management students will be allocated in the Fraijlemaborg building or in the Daalwijkbuilding. The Fraijlemaborgbuilding (built in 2011) is the student accommodation building next to our school building. In this building, we reserve 170 places for our international students. The other rooms are located in the same area, about 10-minutes walking distance from te schoolbuilding (Daalwijk; this is a new project in a renovated building. The building was opened in August 2011) Unfortunately, it is not possible to choose a specific location! De Key is the housing corporation which facilitates the rooms in the Fraijlemaborg-building. DUWO is the housing corporation which facilitates the rooms of Daalwijk. If the number of applications for accommodation is higher than the number of rooms, we will try to take over a room from another School of the Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences.

But as the number of students looking for accommodation is always much higher than the number of vacant rooms; it will be very hard for us to find alternatives.

Q: Can I choose for a special location?

A: No, it is not possible to ask for a special location. You only can choose the preferred type of room and the price category.

Q: After I have registered in EMBARK (= the online system from the Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences and the University of Amsterdam/UvA), how long will it take before I get a room offer?

A: You can expect the room offer via email from De Key or DUWO between 1July and 15 August 2012.

It is very important that you check your e-mail regularly (if you use a spamfilter, check your spam box also!). You must confirm the room offer within 3 working days. The AUAS is not responsible for miscommunication between the housing corporations or if your e-mail address was not correctly filled in the online system. Note that e-mails from the housing corporation (de Key or DUWO) could automatically be put in your spam box if you use a spam filter.

Q: How much do I have to pay in advance?

A: Students renting accommodation via the AUAS will be charged a HvA housing-fee. This fee is required to cover the HvA's costs in providing the housing service to international students.

There are also costs from the housing corporation (‘de Key’ and ‘DUWO’), these costs depends on the housing corporation. You always need to pay a administration fee, plus a deposit plus at least the first month rent. When your room is confirmed by the housing corporation, all details about the first payments will be communicated to you. For specific questions you need to contact the housing corporation.

Q: I do not accept the room which is offered to me, because I think it is too expensive/I decide not to come to Amsterdam/etc., do I get my HvA housing-fee refunded?

A: No, the HvA housing-fee is non-refundable in any case. Only if we cannot offer you any room at all.

Q: How long will it take before I get my deposit back after departure?(Please note that deposit is not the same as the HvA housing-fee!) A: Just before departure, your room will be inspected. If you have left your room clean and without any damages, the complete deposit will be refunded to you as soon as possible. This depends on the housing corporation, if they will transfer it on your bank account or if you can pick it up at the GWK office (currency exchange office).
