Do you have a spare room? Help a student and become a host

27 June 2023

Did you know in the Netherlands there’s an average shortage of 26.500 student rooms? For this reason, in 2022 Hospi Housing, Leiden University and gemeente Leiden started a collaboration to revive the concept of homestay. Last year we helped 50 students by offering them a Dutch homestay experience.

In Leiden, temporarily renting out a room in your home is allowed without a permit and possible for periods as short as two months. Hospi Housing offers personal advice and help to find the perfect match. Being a host is enriching, fun and provides a nice extra income. For hosts and guest families the service is free, students pay a one-time fee.

Want to know more?

Each year hunderds of students in Leiden struggle to find a room. And that’s why we need you. Are you interested or do you know someone with a spare room? Check out Hospihousing.com or send an email to info@hospihousing.com.
