How can I find a room in a residential group?
You can respond to a vacant room once you have registered. The landlord determines how the rooms are allocated. A common method of allocating rooms is hospiteren. If you want to rent a particular room, you are required to send a letter to the current residents with your motivation. Based on the letters that they receive, they will invite some of the candidates. If you are invited, you can meet the current residents and they can get to know you. And you will probably be able to see the room yourself. For the current residents, it is important that you are a good match with the group. The group will choose the candidate who suits their group best. This candidate will receive a lease agreement of the landlord. If you want to rent a room, we strongly advise you to read the tips and tricks for hospiteren. A lot of non-Dutch students only send an e-mail with the following text: I would like to rent the room. If this is the only text you send, the chances that you will be invited to meet the group are close to zero. Therefore, we ask you please to read the text about hospiteren. Another allocation method, which is not used a lot, is that the landlord allocates you a room in a residential group. Are you looking for a room in a residential group?
