Match Houses

Match houses are spacious homes located in different Maastricht neighbourhoods where you live for free – you only pas electricity, gas, water and internet. Together with a team of fellow students you connect your neighbourhood and help neighbours to build new relationships. The project is an ongoing experiment to enable students to have a lasting positive impact on communities and neighbourhoods in the city.  

The project, bulletized

  • Live for free – you only pay your own costs like electricity and water
  • Create your own social impact in your neighbourhood
  • Get challenged and gain real-world experience in making change
  • We coach you to help you learn and grow

Note: registrations for the year of 2019-2020 have closed, but you can still register to be on our waiting list and we’ll get in touch when there is a spot for you.
