The Anna van Buerenplein
The LUC The Hague building at Anna van Buerenplein offers both academic and residential facilities next to The Hague Central Station and the Royal Library (view on map). The residential facilities include accomodation for the first and second year LUC students. During the first two years at LUC The Hague, it is mandatory for students to reside in the Anna van Buerenplein.
As an LUC student, you can either have your own kitchen facilities and bathroom or share it with another LUC student. In addition there is a common room on each floor where you can meet and hang out. Floors are mixed in gender, nationality and in first- and second-year students to create a stimulating exchange of views, and to contribute to the enhancement of the LUC community.
Washing facilities and bike storage are available on the ground floor. LUC operates a Resident Assistants system in which more senior students live with the new students to introduce them to LUC life, and to be there as a mentor. The Anna van Buerenplein offers student housing for your first two years at LUC, after which you will need to find housing elsewhere.
The top floors of the Anna van Buerenplein provide accommodation for first and second year LUC students. All rooms are fully furnished and curtained with their own facilities (kitchen and bathroom with toilet).
The apartments vary in surface (from 27 m² to 41 m²) and the rent price is adjusted accordingly. The rent prices include service costs and the furnishing package which all students rent from DUWO. Please note that these are indications and are subject to change.
The rent prices exclude a bed linen package (€ 50). The bed linen package is mandatory and consists of a pillow, duvet, duvet cover, pillow case and a sheet. The contract costs cover administration and cost € 150 euro. These costs need to be paid, together with the 500 euro housing deposit and first rent payments before signing the contract and picking up the keys.
The rent prices exclude municipal taxes. You can expect taxation from both The Hague municipality as well as the regional water company 'Hoogheemraadschap Delfland'.
(Please note that if your income is approximately at the same level as social security benefits and you do not have assets, you may be eligible for exemption from these taxes. Exemptions can be requested at the municipality of The Hague.)
