Student Life

Benefits of studying & living on campus on your 1st year at HTH

Choosing the right Bachelor programme can be challenging. Adding to that the stress of finding accommodation in Amsterdam or The Hague can make you feel frustrated or overwhelmed. Read below why studying BA in Hospitality Management at Hotelschool The Hague can be the ideal choice for you!

All first-year students live in Skotel

One of the key advantages of starting your studies at Hotelschool The Hague is living in Skotel, Hotelschool The Hague’s student accommodation and hotel for external guests. During this year you will share a room with a fellow classmate. The cost of living is included in the yearly fees and takes away the stress of searching for accommodation in your new country. Helpful, right?

For the following years, you will need to arrange your accommodation yourself. The HTH student network including Student Council and social media are great resources for finding student apartments and houses even in Amsterdam and The Hague; two of the biggest cities in The Netherlands. And did we tell you first year fees include breakfast too?

Make friends for life

Just like at a hotel, your moving-in day at Skotel is called “check-in”. So, literally from day one you get to know your fellow classmates – no need to wait until your first class together! Your future roommate and flat mates may be coming from different countries, so you are automatically joining a great network of like-minded people with a passion for hospitality the very moment you step in at Skotel. Think of movie nights and dinner parties organised by you and your flat mates in the shared kitchen. You will broaden your culinary horizons and immerse yourself in different cultures too.

Practice what you learn

Hotelschool The Hague values theoretical as much as practical education. Apart from studying marketing, revenue management, finance, or HR, you get the opportunity to gain a great deal of valuable experience. During your first year you are being trained in various departments within the school such as Food & Beverage, Rooms Division, and Housekeeping. In turn, you get a first idea of the possible careers the hospitality industry has to offer and explore your strengths and passions.

Broaden your horizons in an international setting

Our school has campuses in Amsterdam and The Hague, two of the most international cities of The Netherlands. Amsterdam is home to over 100.00 students, characterised by a strong entrepreneurial spirit, openness, and a rich cultural scene. The Hague, known as the international city of peace and justice, boasts itself for being home to hundreds of international students and expats. Studying in either of the two cities will surely offer you lots of opportunities to connect with people from different backgrounds and develop soft skills such as adaptability, intercultural communication, problem-solving, and more.
