Looking for a room in Gent? Here you have some information, that might help you!
Most students in Gent rent a room on the private market, but there are also some rooms available for exchange students in the university residences. A room in a university residence might be the easiest, but if there are no rooms anymore, here are some websites for finding a room on the private market:
The earlier you start searching, the better.
Also, some students post messages on the wall of our Facebook group: ESN Gent 2010-2011 regarding Housing.. so you might want to check that also for people who are looking for someone to share housing or who want to get rid of their old room because they go back home!!
Another possibility is to come to Gent earlier, to rent a room in a hostel the first days and to search for a room in the meanwhile. Posters announce the availability of students rooms (kot te huur).
Here are some links for hostels:
Good luck with your search!
