Student housing

As an international student studying abroad finding student accommodation is considered as one of the most important aspects of your student life. It is important that you feel comfortable in your new accommodation, because this will be your new 'home' for some time after all.

A golden tip for your search: start your search for accommodation in time, make time to look for a room, go and see different rooms and compare them. If you are not able to come to your new student city before the start of the academic year to look for student accommodation and you want to rent a room from abroad, watch out for fraud and never transfer money before having a copy of the signed rental contract.

Our housing service will gladly assist you with information and advice for your search. They can answer your questions about how much it can cost, where to look and they have some useful tips for your search.

A standard room in the centre of Brussels costs on average €530 per month, including a fixed amount for the utility costs and internet. The rental prices of the student rooms depend on the location, the desired comfort (private bathroom/shower or not) and the size of the room.

If the rental prices in the city centre are beyond your budget, you should look for a room in the other communes of the Brussels Capital Region. Our campus is easily accessible by public transport and you can make unlimited use of it with a Brussels' metro system pass at student rate (€12 for 12 months if you are younger than 24 years old).

The rental season in Brussels starts at the end of June - beginning of July and the summer months are particularly busy.
Some private owners, however, start renting out their rooms earlier and work with a waiting list. Make sure to start looking for suitable student accommodation in time, eg. March/April.

Guided tours of Brik during the summer

Throughout the summer, Brik organises guided tours (Kottours) around the student rooms it manages in the centre of Brussels. You can have a look at the accommodation that interests you most and immediately sign a rental contract if you have found what you are looking for.

Note! During these guided tours in July and August, only the rooms managed by Brik in the centre of Brussels are included. The rooms from private landlords are not included. You have to contact the owner directly to make an appointment to see the room.

Check the website of Brik for more information and the planning of these tours.
