Finding your palace
Finding a place to live in Rotterdam isn't easy. In fact searching for a room or apartment is hard work. Keep your ears open and your eyes sharp at all times. Rooms in Rotterdam get more and more expensive, € 350.- for a 20m² room is quite common.
To start your search it might be useful to bike through the city to find out which neighborhood you want to live in. The internet is a useful source for finding your palace. Unfortunately a lot of these websites are in Dutch, but for sure you can find yourself a way through the worldwide web with a Dutch dictionary. Some websites require you to subscribe to it in order to have a look at their database.
