Student housing in Amsterdam
Despite the fact that 11,000 units were built in Amsterdam for young people and students in the period 2014-2018, the housing situation has not improved. Young people and students have competition from many other groups in the housing market, who often have more to spend. In addition, the number of students is still growing and in 2018 there is a shortage of 9,400 student residences. The shortage of housing for young people is not exactly known, but it is estimated at 8,000 to 22,000 homes.
