Tenants are quite often allowed to look for a new housemate via social media or among their friends and fellow students. It is therefore wise to actively use your social (media) network when you are searching for a room.

You can find several social media groups listed below in which people post requests and available rooms. Most neighbourhoods and student flats in and around Utrecht also keep a residence group on Facebook in which residents post notifications, upcoming events and items for sale, such as furniture, bikes and clothes.You might find it useful to follow the social media group of your local community once you are settled.
