Popular student area

Kralingen/Crooswijk is a particularly popular district among students looking for a room. The heart of the student scene is at walking distance. Stadswonen Rotterdam offers a range of units for rent in this district.

Kralingen/Crooswijk is one of the most popular districts among students looking for their own digs in Rotterdam. And for good reason: in one of our rooms in Kralingen, student life - in all its glory - is in walking distance. For example, Oostzeedijk is lined with a whole range of student cafés. In fact, everything you need is nearby: you can bike to Erasmus University Rotterdam in no time, and the district also has various locations of Rotterdam University of Applied Sciences. There’s a public swimming pool, Kralingse Bos (Rotterdam’s largest urban park) and a number of supermarkets - the busiest of which is the Albert Heijn on Oudedijk. But the district’s popularity comes at a price. It generally takes longer to score a room, studio or flat in Kralingen/Crooswijk than in does in most other districts.

Did you know that?

  • You’re allowed to barbecue in Kralingse Bos, and that the park has its own beach?

  • You can actually live in a former church?
  • We even offer units with a view of Kralingse Plas!

Woongebouwen uitgelicht


The absolute best time to enjoy the view is during our joint rooftop barbecues.


I’m allowed to sublet my room during my exchange – that’s so relaxed!
