What is a housing grant?
It is not sufficient that you prefer to live alone.
You may only receive a housing grant if
- The distance between parental home and school is more than 40 kilometres, or
- You spend more than three hours per day travelling between your parents’ home and school, or
- There are conditions that prevent you from living at home
The grant is not means-tested
Neither your parents’ income nor you own income affect the size of the housing grant
How to apply
There is no separate application for housing grants. When you apply for a grant for upper secondary education, you must check the box indicating that you will be living away from home. We will then assess whether you are entitled to a housing grant.
