Hi new housemate – Our lovely large super fun four person 3-level sharehouse at Waversebaan 189 in Heverlee (Leuven) has two rooms available from February . Belgians and internationals welcome to join us on a new 1-year contract. Total costs per person is around 550 per month (varies on room and bills). Read our summary below and if you’re interested send us a few sentences about yourself (name, age, hobbies, research/work) to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will then invite you to a house/room inspection in January for you to see us!

Rent for the room is 390 euros per month, plus the utility bills. Room available in late January or February (flexible date).

About the other house mates:
Rene: 28-year-old Austrian geeky roboticist. Often found talking about physics and drones.
Marija: 30-something Croatian architect. Often found talking about the Venice Architecture Biennale.
We have our own busy lives working and researching. We are usually up early and out the door to our respective offices. But in the house we also enjoy playing board games (Settlers of Catan, of course), inviting friends over for beers, movies, and dinners, and doing day trips around Belgium together.
About the rest of the house:
Fully furnished 3-level house. Nice kitchen (with two fridges and a freezer), large living room, basement/garage for our bikes, backyard garden for BBQs, two toilets and one shower, internet, clothes washing machine, free street parking (and a side entrance for parking), and heaps of storage space. We have a lovely housekeeper (cleaning lady) that comes every Tuesday and does an awesome job keeping the house clean and tidy.
We are close to the Arenberg campus for all those science nerds. A SPAR supermarket and Carrefour express is just down the road, and we have a farmers market every Sunday morning. We are super close to the Heverlee forest which makes for relaxing walks and great bike rides.
Only PhD students or working professionals can join the house. Sorry, but bachelor or masters students are not permitted to join us (this is a local council rule for this specific house).
You must be registered / domiciled on the contract. No exceptions.
Rental contract will be 12 months, signed by all four tenants.
Bond / deposit is 3 months rent approximately 1,000 euros (a Flanders government law).
We share ownership over the utility bills. If you join, you will be assigned one (e.g. internet, gas, water, housekeeper, insurance, organic rubbish bin).
