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. You can have a maximum of five live applications at any one time. 

We allocate vacant student rooms and student studios to applicants who have accumulated the longest waiting times. 

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). You will only be offered one accommodation, even if you are top of the list for several places you’ve applied for
