Finding a room in Utrecht

Use your netwerk

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.

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).

Checklist for students living on their own
