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 2 buildings in 2023. For now, the focus is on The Netherlands. After succeeding, expansion to other European cities is the goal.
