Housing in Bruges

​When you come and study at VIVES University of Applied Sciences, we will make sure your stay is an enjoyable one. Of course you can find housing by yourself, but you can also ask our housing staff to help you look for a comfortable student room near our campus.



​VIVES University of Applies Sciences rents rooms on the private market and sublets them to international students. 


​In Bruges we rent the 4th floor with 18 studentrooms at residence Studio Bruges - Frank van Ackerepromenade 8, Bruges. Rooms have their own private bathroom and shared kitchen. Rental price per semester (5 months) is €2000. If those rooms are all rented out we make you another similar housing offer. 

​Price for a single room is €2000/semester (5 months). The prices mentionned are to be paid in full even if you arrive after the start of the rental period or if you leave before the end of the rental period. All students who make a reservation for a room have to pay a deposit of €250 and an administration fee of €100.


​The payment of the deposit, the administration fee and the rent for a single room needs to be done in 1 instalment of €2350.

​The deadline to submit the application form is:​

  • May 31 (first semester/whole academic year)

  • November 20 (second semester)

After submitting your application, you will receive an email informing you wether a room will be available for you at  the residence.  In the same confirmation email, you will be requested to make the payment of the instalment (€250 deposit + €100 administration fee + €2000 rent) into the bank account specified in the invoice in the email. This should be done within 14 days of receiving your e-mail. Please be aware that international money transfers can take several days. Therefore, we advise you to transfer the money as soon as possible. 

After the confirmation e-mail, you will have to contact the student coach of the residence by e-mail for the practical arrangements (date of arrival, pick-up keys, etc.) Students who apply for housing can use the following services: free use of a mattress (most studenthouses do not have mattresses!) and buying a bedlinen set (duvet, pillow, sheets, ...). 

​Arrival information: Arrival is only possible during the daytime during weekdays. If you arrive during the weekend, at night, ... you have to book a room in a hotel. For example next to the student house you will find an IBIS Budget Hotel.
