After registration you can choose which room or studio you want to live in. You can choose a room in Johanna, but also a room in another building. SSH has several buildings in Utrecht. Please note that there may be more than one candidate for the same room or studio. The longest registration period will then be considered. The longer you are enrolled, the earlier your turn will be.

Our Apartments

Johanna has 381 student rooms in units, in which you will live with a total of 4, 5 or 6 students. You share the living room / kitchen, shower and toilet with each other. The room you rent is of course all yours. You will have to furnish this room yourself or you can make appointments with the previous tenant.

When you apply for a room the current housemates will invite the first 10-15 persons with the longest registration time to come by. This is a short informal meeting to get to know each other and see the room. After this the housemates will decide who they want as their new housemate. Needless to say, you can still say no to the room if you have been selected.

In addition to the student rooms, Johanna also has 274 studios. Living in a studio means that you have all the amenities for yourself. So you don’t have to share the living room, shower and toilet.

Studios are divided into small and large studios of between 23m2 and 30m2. For these studios it is possible to apply for rent allowance if you are 23 years of age or older. You will have to pay the municipal levies yourself.

In order to be eligible for a studio, you will have to be registered with the SSH as the longest.
