Limited time of occupancy

Hoas has set a limited time of 5 years of occupancy on studios. The occupancy time is limited in studios to allow as many students as possible to have the opportunity to live in a studio at some point during their studies. When a tenant has used up the limited occupancy time in a studio, he/she cannot apply for a studio again. This limitation also applies to studios with a shared kitchen and studios with a mini kitchen.

From 1st January 2016, there are no more occupancy time limitations on specific properties.

The end of a limited occupancy time

When you're running out of your limited time of occupancy, Hoas will send you a reminder. In the letter you will find specific instructions on how to proceed. What you need to do depends on whether your occupancy limitation follows Hoas's old rules or the new rules that came into effect on the 1st of January 2016.

Your studies must still be ongoing and they must have progressed according to the criteria set by Hoas in order to you to extend the agreement or to apply for a transfer of right to occupancy. If your studies have ended, Hoas will not offer you a new apartment or extend your agreement. Check the detailed instructions for what you should bring with you to the Hoas office when you extend your agreement.
