Housing in Antwerp
Antwerp Management School is located at Boogkeers 5, 2000 Antwerp. Since we do not offer on-campus accommodation, you are expected to independently organize your housing arrangements.
The monthly rent for a furnished room varies from anywhere between €390 to €600. Note that the costs for water, electricity and heating are usually not included in the rental price, make sure to ask your landlord about this when inquiring about the associated fees. Before moving into your room or apartment you will have to pay, in addition to the first month’s rent, a security deposit of two to three months rent. Make sure to have the required amount available upon your arrival.
Take into account that most rooms have 12-month contracts. Some landlords are flexible with leaving dates, for example if you find another tenant. This is not a guarantee though so make sure you discuss this with your landlord.
We kindly ask you to not contact the University of Antwerp for housing placement questions and instead reach out to us with your questions and concerns.
