Then we are looking for you!

Match Houses

Several neighbourhoods in the city have ‘Match houses’. In exchange for a reduced rent, students living here spend eight hours a week on communal projects. Their aim is to enhance social cohesion and help Statushouders (refugees with a residence permit) with their integration in the neighbourhood.

Curious if the Match Houses are something for you? Watch our video about the project here.
