International Student Housing Assistance
The International Students Housing Assistance (ISHA) is a joint committee by three Utrecht student associations: Erasmus Student Network (ESN), VIDIUS and BoKS.

ISHA is a committee that has been established to protect the rights of Short Stayers (exchange students, master students and employees) renting a room of SSH for a short period of time. However, over the years the target group has been broadened to include all internationals students who have questions related to housing matters.

What do we do?
If you have any problems with your landlord and you feel that your complaints are not treated correctly, you can ask help from ISHA. ISHA can advise you and discuss your complaint with SSH Short Stay and try to find a solution for you or direct you to the right people for help.

Secondly, we conduct a biannual questionnairy about international student housing in Utrecht. This questionnairy helps us to monitor the current housing standards for international students in Utrecht. You can find the current questionnaire here.

What don’t we do?
We neither offer nor search rooms for you. If you need a room take a look at the housing page.
