Students are responsible for finding their own housing. Unfortunately, the possibilities for the conservatory to arrange housing for students either directly or indirectly are very restricted. Extremely limited housing is made available to conservatory students in buildings belonging to Presto or the Stichting Jan Pietersz. Huis.
When you arrive in September in Amsterdam as a beginning bachelor or master student, you may subscribe to the waiting list of the Jan Pieterszoon Huis (JPH). This organization offers in coöperation with the CvA specific housing for CvA music students. After you register with the JPH you will be placed on a waiting list and will receive regular mails offering available apartments. JPH has ± 450 apartments available. Estimated waiting time: popular apartments several years, less popular, sometimes no waiting time. Subscription to the waiting list costs € 25,-per calender year.
