Responding and allocation

Found your ideal place? What happens next?

Got a room or studio in your sights? Then it’s time to spring into action!

Find out how to apply and how we allocate accommodations.

Are you already registered with us? Then you can apply for accommodation via the Stadswonen Portal. First check that you qualify for your chosen place. The conditions are shown in the advertisements.

We rent our rooms and studios to students aged between 17 and 27 who are studying a full-time MBO, HBO or WO course in Rotterdam. We allocate vacant rooms and studios to applicants who have accumulated the longest waiting times. A number of accommodations are reserved for members of study and student associations.

Once you’re living in one of our accommodations, you can move to another room or studio while you’re still studying. We allocate these prioritised by length of time already renting from us (x2) (existing tenants) and by waiting time (non-tenants). Read more about application and allocation when moving to a different accommodation.

After your chosen accommodation’s application closing date has passed, you can follow the status of your application via the Stadswonen Portal. Whether you are invited for a viewing or tenants’ interview depends on the length of your waiting time, eligibility for fast-tracking and the preferences of the existing tenants (in the case of selection by tenants’ interview).
