Co-operation of different parties

In 2017, the Municipality of Enschede, University of Twente, Saxion Hogeschool, Housing Foundation De Veste and Stichting Jongeren Huisvesting Twente joined forces. They wanted to make the search for housing in Enschede and the surrounding area easier. This is how Roomspot was created, the online platform where (international) students and young people can find their new home.
