Unfurnished houses for rent are offered by estate agents, housing corporations and private landlords. The use of gas and electricity is usually not included in the rent money. Furnished apartments or partially furnished apartments are available through private landlords, private house owners and estate agents such as indicated below. The website pararius.com offers an extensive list of agencies.  

The Erasmus University offers extensive information about housing for international students on their website. How to find a room, when to start looking for accommodation, where to buy furniture, the neighbourhoods in Rotterdam, a glossary of housing terms etc.

* only charges a fee to the landlord, not the tenant (expat). Only when the expat requires a house search, a fee will be charged.

The use of gas and electricity is sometimes included in the rent; please verify this to make sure.

If you want to buy a house, we recommend you to commission an estate agent. Since many estate agents are linked up to a common data system, the one of your choice can usually provide you with a complete overview of all houses for sale. Addresses of estate agents and a current overview of houses can be found on Funda.nl, niki.nl, jaap.nl (only in Dutch) or Exclusive houses.

Leasing furniture can be a welcome solution for those who expect to stay in Rotterdam for only a relatively short period of time.

It is possible to lease complete furnishing for your home; from kitchen utensils down to carpets. More information can be given by estate agents or by the advertisers in this guide. For temporary living arrangements: Furniture Lease, Home Inspirations or In-Lease.

For storage of your household effects you can use the services of Pickupbox.nl (website is in Dutch)

Relocation services are provided by several companies. Addresses can be found in the telephone directory.
