Student services


First of all PXL University College does NOT offer student residences on campus. You need to rent a student room from private landlords.

Students generally rent a room (or “kot”) in a student house shared with between 5 and 60 fellow students. Rooms are usually furnished and are minimum 12 m² in size. Bed linen and kitchen utensils are not provided. Each room has a private sink. Kitchen and shower is shared or individual. Access to internet is widely available in private student accommodation.

The average rent is about €320 per month, including expenses for utilities. You always need to pay a deposit of two months’ rent in advance. Your rent needs to be paid monthly.

We have an up-to-date database with available rooms. This database contains a list of all available accommodations, including the names of landlords/landladies and owners who use the official tenancy agreement.

It is advisable to use this official tenancy agreement, as it guarantees the rights of a tenant. In case of a discord between tenant and landlord/landlady/owner, someone of the social service acts as an intermediary. If you sign the contract of a certain period, you also need to pay the rent for the whole period, even if you want to leave earlier. So think about this before you sign the contract. Do not wait until you arrive in Belgium to rent a room! From April 2015 onwards, we have a youth hostel in Hasselt where you can stay for a short period.
