The Netherlands plans to extend the students' home for 60,000 additional accommodation places in 2030
In efforts to reduce the shortage of housing for students in the Netherlands, the Dutch government has introduced the National Student Housing Action Plan 2022-2030.
In efforts to reduce the shortage of housing for students in the Netherlands, the Dutch government has introduced the National Student Housing Action Plan 2022-2030, which plans to offer an expansion of 60,000 homes for affordable students for the next eight years.
According to a press release from the Central Government, this initiative intends to offer accommodation to the influx of international students who arrive in the Netherlands, letsdowebsite.com reports.
“To be able to make this choice the students who move], enough housing for students are needed. That is why we are joining forces with several parts to offer 60,000 homes for additional students in the next eight years to build, ”said Jonge Minister for Housing and Space Planning.
In addition, the new plan intends to create 60,000 students by 2030 through the construction of new accommodation places and encouraged the best use of existing places.
In addition, carrying the total number of flexible housing at 37,500, the cabinet is also investing 37 million euros through an incentive scheme for house housing, which will cover the students' housing invoices.
The decision occurs after the students complained about having to deal with high rentals and poor housing, which discouraged them to pursue their academic careers.
“It is clear to me that something must be done about the shortage of rooms. You need a lot of time, stress and energy to get a room if they are successful or decide to stay at home after all, "said Minister Dijkgraaf of Education, Culture and Science.
To deal with the maximum load, the best information about the accommodation must be available to students. International students who prioritize housing can make them more likely to be victims of real estate market discrimination.
The shape of the leases or alternatives of short stay can have certain obstacles, since they are not completely legally protected. To improve the position of international students, the authorities have reached the common agreement to establish an adequate rental contract for international students in an attempt to provide more transparency in rent and offer alternative rental methods.
However, the problem of housing scarcity for students is improving in the coming years as the number of incoming international students increases. The demand for affordable accommodation and the pressure on the stock of affordable homes is so large that the solution is not only in the new construction.
That is why a more detailed organization and maintenance of the data is needed regarding the influx of international students with more control options for educational institutions.
