The rent is calculated using a solidarity system that's based on your monthly income. It averages around €350,- but it can be more or less. There's also a monthly contribution to the house pot, from which we buy organic food in bulk, a weekly vegetable package and anything else that we might need for around the house.
In the city centre of Nijmegen, 15 minutes (by foot) away from the train station, 1 minute away from the closest supermarket and 3 minutes away from a bus stop.
The building includes two living groups, a volunteer-led political café, a music venue, and an anarchist library. The building also houses different non-profit organisations. The living group shares a vegan kitchen, a roof terrace, two showers, two toilets, and a guest room. Because the living spaces are on the first and second floor of a building with only staircases, it is unfortunately not wheelchair accessible.
There are two rooms available, one as a furnished sub-let for four months (until the end of may), the other one as a more indefinite stay. Both rooms are very spacious; the four-month-stay room has two big windows overlooking the street below, the other room is also big, has high ceilings and is fitted with a mezzanine and a really large window.
Description coliving group
We're a group of 7 people, who share an interest in (non-parliamentary) politics and activism. We also interact a lot with the other living group (also seven people) in the house. We sometimes have movie nights, make banners, volunteer in the cafe and music venue downstairs, go to house meetings and enjoy our shared house dinners :)
Right now our group consists of people from 23-35 years old of different genders. Our interests are also super varied, ranging from (making) music and dancing to climbing, art, radical queer politics, skateboarding, electronics, DIY culture, plants, anti-racist memes, Star Wars, and a lot more.
We're looking for a new housemate who wants to participate in an activist-minded woongroep and get involved with the things that are going on around the house, like designing flyers and banners, organising actions, baking a vegan cake for the cafe, going to monthly meetings, and many more options. We also have dinner together on a regular basis so we can have a good sense of community. We work to make the house a safer space away from bigotry and will therefore give priority to people of colour and people with non-cis gender identities. Therefore, consider not applying if you are a cis white man without any interests in intersectional activism.
If you're interested in becoming our new housemate, send an email to email@example.com and tell us why you want to live here! Experience with similar collective, self-organising living situations is a plus! Also let us know if you would rather opt for a temporary stay or see yourself living here for longer. We look forward to your message, will reply as fast as possible and hopefully invite you for a ‘kijkavond’ soon so we can get to know each other.
