More room shortage due to new basic grant
With the arrival of a new basic grant, even more students will want to rent on their own, wrote former Minister van Engelshoven to the forming parties. This could lead to more room shortage.
It is one of the remarks in a letter from October, intended to help the forming parties think about a new basic grant. The document was made public this week.
Especially a difference between a scholarship for people living at home and those living away from home will create a bigger demand for student housing, said outgoing minister Van Engelshoven. “How much greater the demand will be is difficult to estimate, but this will lead to further tightness on the housing market for students and others.” (HOP/BB)
