Stay informed about suitable accomodation
Would you like to receive a message by e-mail if suitable accommodation is available for you? Then create a search profile with your wishes.
Look for suitable accomodation
Roomspot shows all available housing offer. If you do not create a search profile, you see every accomdation that is available.
You can create a search profile with specific requirements. In 'My Roomspot' under the button 'Suitable offers' we only show the rooms and apartments that best suit your profile.
The accommodation you are allowed to respond to depends on your registration and search profile
Respond to nice accomodation
Click on the photo of the room or apartment for extensive information such as living space, energy label, location and photos. If you are interested in the accomodation, click on the 'Respond' button at the bottom of the page.
Selection and viewing
After the expiry of the ad time, the system selects the candidate. Who that is depends on how Roomspot allocates the accomodation. This is done in the following way:
Registration period - This only applies to apartments. The person with the longest registration time will be offered the apartment first.
Random - This only applies to apartments. The system chooses a candidate.
Coöptation - This applies to rooms in a group. When you respond to a room, the group will have to select you as a new roommate.
If you are the selected candidate for an apartment, you will receive an e-mail with instructions from Roomspot. You get the time to view the apartment. Let us know within the stipulated period whether you want to accept the accommodation. If you do not respond or respond too late, the offer will expire and the next candidate will have a chance to rent the apartment.
If you want to rent a room in a (student) group, co-optation will in most cases occur. In case of co-optation, the current residents are allowed to decide who becomes the ne roommate. Most groups organize a room search night, where they invite a number of candidates. If you want to be invited, send the group an e-mail in which you tell something about yourself. You will automatically receive the contact details of the group by e-mail if you respond to a room via Roomspot.
Check personal data and signing tenancy agreement
If you accept the room or the apartment after viewing, the landlord will check your details. Then the offer becomes final and you can sign the teancy agreement.
