L Residence VS Coliving : what to choose ?

L Residence VS Coliving : what to choose ?

You are going to live in Brussels for a longer or shorter period, from 3 months to years, and you are still hesitating between individual housing or coliving? We hope that this article will help you find your dream accommodation in Brussels!


Brussels, the European capital, is a city that welcomes thousands of expatriates and young workers every semester. One of the most common ways to find accommodation as young travelers and workers is through coliving. 

The first coliving appeared in Brussels in 2016 and have not stopped growing in popularity. Lots of companies offer coliving ranging from 6 to 20 roommates, sharing the kitchen, living room, sometimes bathrooms, outdoor spaces, leaving your private space to one room: your own bedroom. This type of renting offers advantages like a set of services gathered for a fixes monthly price (regular cleaning, common purchase of household products, subscription to platforms like Netflix...). 

Coliving is, above all, seen as a human interest: to be surrounded by other people of all backgrounds, ages, and interests, and has some common drawbacks such as the sharing of common spaces with a lot of people and prices that are starting to match the prices of studios and one bedroom apartments.
