If you want to rent a room in a residential group, it could be the case that you have to deal with hospiteren/co-optation. This means that you have to write a letter to tell something more about yourself (interests, hobbies), so that your future roommates can see if you could get along with the residents. Then, it could be the case that you will be invited with some other (future) students to have a look at the room and meet the other residents. The current residents then decide who will be their new roommates. You might be rejected once or twice, but don't give up. Just be yourself and you will find the ideal room with ideal roommates.

Short stay

A "short stay" is when you rent a room or house for a few days to a few weeks. Short stays are commonly paid for per night. Short-stay accommodations are frequently available in hotels, motels, hostels, vacation rentals, or even through short-term rental platforms like Airbnb.
