Finding a room in Rotterdam

Use your network

Make use of your networks on social media, such as Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn, to announce your search for a room. Talk to family, friends and acquaintances. Send all your WhatsApp and Snapchat contacts a message. You can also go the traditional route and place an ad in door-to-door publications or regional newspapers (although these options are not free). Lastly, you can visit your Tio campus, where you will find information about finding a room posted on the magnetic boards.

Checklist for students living on their own

Besides finding a room, there are some other important things to take care of when you want to live on your own. Think of, for example, taking out household insurance and arranging an internet connection. Prizewize has drawn up a checklist for students living on their own (Dutch students only). This can act as a guideline, so you do not overlook anything important.
