Stadswonen Rotterdam has rooms to rent from €325 per month. Almost all our rooms qualify for housing subsidy, so you can save money each month. Of course, there are other things to pay for besides the rent. We’ve created a handy list of these living costs so you can work out your budget.

When a room or apartment becomes available to a new tenant, the existing residents can interview the applicants to decide who they would like to live with. They are forwarded the applications from the fifteen candidates with the longest waiting times. From these, they select a few to interview. Read more about tenant interviews

Are you in genuinely urgent need of a room? In certain circumstances, you can request a declaration of urgency which fast-tracks your allocation. Read more about declaration of urgency conditions and how to apply.
