The faculty is located in an imposing building in the city centre, fully equipped with all electronic and other facilities. The faculty’s central location in the city centre, with its numerous pavement cafes, bars and restaurants, and the proximity of several other faculties, makes it an authentic inner-city campus.
In Maastricht you don’t live on a campus or with a landlady
You rent a room together with other students. You cook and eat together and turn your student house into a home. The average rent is between 300 and 400 euro. Most students live in a room in the city centre, but you can also choose to live in a suburb or even a place just across the border in Belgium.
Most rooms can be found on walking or biking distance from the university buildings and public transport is excellent. Maastricht Housing will help you find a suitable room. Many exchange students rent a furnished room in one of the buildings of the UM Guesthouse, which are all located close to the centre. There are 350 rooms available for 1 or 2 students per room and 45 rooms/studios for master’s students.
The law faculty has five study associations. For more information visit the association's website.
