Finding housing comes with a lot of stress and insecurities. In The Netherlands, one of the biggest issues faced currently is housing. For students, this can be a living nightmare. At multiple Dutch universities, we've increased the chance of finding housing by smartly connecting students on our platform, thus boosting satisfaction & conversion.
Through collaborating with the universities, we are able to gather and provide essential information to help support students in finding a home. With our ‘Practical Tips’, we inform students on the best sources for house hunting. Additionally, we create housing groups that allow students to team up and help each other in acquiring a home together. On many occasions, Goin’ is where students find the most success in housing!
Natan - Saxion University of Applied Sciences
"I find it very useful. It helps me to get to know current and prospective students. Students at Saxion are from all over the world. Although, I'm the only one from Ethiopia, I see that there are also students from other African countries like Kenya, South Sudan, Uganda...It's diverse! I'm optimistic it will help me to have a smooth landing at Saxion. Most importantly, I think it is a good app to find roommates. I am keen to make new friends!"
Martyna - NHL Stenden University of Applied Sciences
"I feel really nice here because everyone is so helpful and I can make a friends already so I won’t be lonely when I come to Netherlands. I found my future roommate already! We were looking for a room and we found a beautiful house!"
Henriika - Univeristy of Helsinki
"Goin' really helps people that are moving, because they can talk with other students and make groups with different interests. It's more comfortable to move knowing people.The personal link to invite students to this app, makes using it more safe. For example nice to help or talk more about housing in Helsinki knowing that I can talk with other fellow students."
Nino - University of Helsinki
“You cannot imagine how the Goin’ app helped me throughout this challenging time. I am really grateful for this! Information shared via Goin' can save you from making mistakes and wrong choices. Personally, I've received the perfect housing offer and the peers from Goin' played a vital role in this. To say shortly, the chance to get advice and share your experience is the most valuable thing!”
Violetta - Utrecht Summer School
“Goin is an amazing idea. It helped me a lot because my flight was cancelled, and I was able to tell someone from my course to pick up the keys for my accommodation because I couldn’t.”
Matea - Cardiff University
“I actually met another Norwegian student on the platform and long story short we'll now be living in the same student housing! For foreign students, especially from small countries like myself, it's really valuable to be able to connect with others in the same situation.”
Lei - University of Helsinki
"There is so much useful information shared. I found one about housing which was super helpful. The relaxed, informal, and immediate interaction in the app gives a sense of support that helps to ease the process of moving to a different place!"
Through Goin’, students have been able to connect and share their concerns with each other. Allowing them to collaborate in finding a home. For some, not finding a home can be the deciding factor in not being able to study at the university. Thus, having additional leverage in support can help to boost conversions.
