IMPORTANT: As LIVE master student you will receive well before your arrival in Antwerp a personal proposal by email from the University of Antwerp for accommodation during your stay in Antwerp. You can choose to accept this proposal, or if you prefer, you can look for accommodation yourself.
The average rent for a furnished room in and around Antwerp is €350 for a room and €450 for a studio. It is not uncommon that a deposit is requested for an amount equal to 2 to 3 months of the rental price. These are average prices and rooms can be cheaper or more expensive, depending on the neighborhood and facilities on site. These prices do not always include costs for gas, electricity, water and internet. For these facilities, you sometimes have to pay an advance per month. This fixed amount is usually €30 to €60 per month. At the end of the rental period, you will be given a detailed account on the basis of what has been actually consumed, which includes the paid advances. Be careful - these can be quite high if you are not careful with the amount of energy consumed!
