How to apply for TVT housing

Get to know our range of apartments and consider your housing needs. The less you narrow down the location and building type of your desired housing, the easier it will be to find your new home. You can use the same application form to apply for housing at several locations.

Fill out the housing application

Your housing application remains valid for three months. If you wish to extend the validity of your application, supplement your information or notify of changes (e.g., desired apartment, income, family situation), please use the applicable electronic form. Do not submit an entirely new application; each applicant can only have one valid application at a time. Sending multiple applications will cause a delay in the processing of your application.

How your application is processed

  • Your application is processed within three business days. During the process, the processors also check the applicant’s credit history, population register data and recent residential history.
  • Once everything is cleared, we will offer the applicant a suitable vacant apartment. We only offer each vacantapartment to one applicant at a time. Viewings are arranged only for the applicant to whom it is offered.
  • If there are no suitable apartments available, the application will remain pending for upcoming vacancies.

Your housing application remains valid for three months. If you have not found suitable housing after this time, remember to renew your application.
