International Student Housing Assistance
The International Students Housing Assistance (ISHA) is a joint committee run by four Utrecht student associations: Erasmus Student Network (ESN) Utrecht, VIDIUS studententunie, Buddy Go Dutch 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 international students who have questions related to housing matters.

What do we do?
ISHA focusses on the improvement of housing conditions for international students in Utrecht. So, 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 biannual questionnaires about international student housing in Utrecht. This questionnaire helps us to monitor the current housing standards for international students in Utrecht. This is your opportunity to share your accommodation experiences. Your answers will be carefully analysed in order to better understand which areas allow for improvement, and additionally, how these improvements may be realised. As such, your answers will help to improve future international students' experiences. 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.
