About Citylife

Citylife is a tech-driven real estate startup specialized in (re)building co-living apartments based on the needs of young people. We perform a so-called ‘end-to-end’ approach, where we purchase the real estate, refurbish, rent, and manage it. With this approach, we can assure a top-notch experience among our members. We create high-quality apartments that friends can share, while we provide them great service during their stay. Furthermore, co-living makes living in the very heart of the city affordable for students and young professionals.

Citylife delivers highly attentive and responsive service with a personal touch, yet digitizing and automating processes where most convenient. Our vision for Citylife is to become a love brand for renting co-living apartments that acts as a recognizable quality stamp all over Europe. The Citylife homes are more than just a roof over your head. Renting a Citylife apartment makes you a member (not just a tenant). As a member you benefit from a beautiful and modern home for you and your friends, you become part of an active community and also gain access to various exclusive Citylife events.

Citylife aims to purchase at least 40 apartments in 2021. Next, we’re working on the transition from buying and renting out single apartments to purchasing, refurbishing, and renting out co-living buildings. The first buildings are purchased. The ambition for the remainder of 2021 is to buy multiple buildings of which at least one building is bigger than 5,000 m2. For now, we are focussing on Rotterdam, to expand to the other four large cities in the Netherlands after that. The next step is to go abroad.
