🏠 Looking for a room?
👫 Or looking for an awesome flatmate from the Czech and Slovak community?

📧 Look no further, we got you covered using our new room-seekers@cssz.ch mailing list. 🥳

Looking for a room

Join the group to receive emails for any potential offers. You can always leave or manage your membership through Google Groups. When responding to an offer, make sure you read the listing in detail – unrelated responses are a huge factor for a low response rate.

Of course, make sure to also use other ways to look for a room, such as WG Zimmer or Woko.

Looking for a flatmate

Email the group with anything you’ve got, you don’t need to join the group youself. The best is if you have a link to your already existing ad (such as on WG Zimmer) that has more information about the room (address, size, price, pictures, description of flatmates, and so on).

You will hear back if any of the candidates are interested.
