To make use of your studio, you'll pay a monthly fee. How you pay is up to you. How does it work? We will explain here.

WHAT IS THE PRICE FOR A STUDIO?

To determine the maximum rent we can charge for a studio, the government has developed a point system. The point system represents the quality of the studio in points.

Points are assigned to each part of the studio, such as the surface area and energy label. The WOZ value of the studio also counts in the points calculation. The total amount of points generates a maximum rent. We cannot ask for more, only for less. This way we ensure that we always attach a fair price to your studio.

The prices vary per location. For more information about the studio price of a specific location go to:

DO I HAVE TO PAY BY DIRECT DEBIT?

When you sign your contract, we ask you to authorise us to automatically debit the rent from your account every month. In this way, you do not have to worry about payments and you always pay on time, even when you are on holiday. The rent is debited at the end of the month. It is also possible that someone else pays the rent for you (your parents, for example).

Although direct debit is the most convenient way to pay (this way you can be sure that you always pay on time), you can also pay using other methods. More information can be found here.

IS IT POSSIBLE TO REQUEST HOUSING ALLOWANCE?

Applying for housing allowance is possible if you are 23 years or older and live at one of the following Student Experience locations: Amsterdam Zuidas, Amsterdam Amstel, Amsterdam NDSM.

Do you want to know how much housing allowance you are entitled to? You can conduct a test calculation for this. This can be done directly with the Tax authorities by clicking here.

When calculating the rent allowance, you must keep the basic rent.

In addition, there are eligible service costs that you can specify when applying for housing benefit. Eligible service costs are parts of the service costs that you may include in the calculation of your rent allowance. There is a maximum amount of €12 per part.

The eligible service costs at Student Experience are:

  • Cleaning costs for common areas;
  • Energy costs for common areas (35% of total energy costs);
  • Caretaker costs.
WHEN CAN THE RENT BE INCREASED?

Every year we adjust the net rent (this concerns the basic rent without service costs). The government determines the maximum percentage by which rents can be raised. Every year, you will receive an e-mail containing the new rent rate before May 1st. The adjustment of the rent always goes into effect on July 1st.

DO I HAVE TO PAY A DEPOSIT FOR THE STUDIO?

Yes, before you check-in a deposit must be paid. The amount of the deposit can be found in the information regarding the specific location. We will refund (the remainder of) the deposit two months after the end of the contract.
