Housing services

Antwerp Management School is located in the city center of Antwerp. Since we do

not offer on-campus accommodation, you are expected to independently organize your

housing arrangements.

The monthly rent for a furnished room varies from anywhere between €390 to €600.

Note that the costs for water, electricity and heating are usually not included in the rental

price, make sure to ask your landlord about this when inquiring about the associated

fees. Before moving into your room or apartment you will have to pay, in addition to the

first month’s rent, a security deposit of two to three months rent. Make sure to have the

required amount available upon your arrival. Take into account that most rooms have

12-month contracts. 

AMS has contracts with some hotels.
