Join the community!

Startmotor is more than just living. You live there together with many other young professionals. Discover new faces with inspiring shared spaces and life-enriching experiences in our coliving community.

Sharing is caring

The Startmotor is for people who value a community alongside individuality. Our inviting community spaces are designed to bring people together. You can live, work, and play with fellow residents, while you can also relax in the comfort of your own home.

The Startmotor community

The Startmotor is not an anonymous apartment complex. You know each other, help each other and you keep it pleasant and livable together. Together you form the Startmotor community. The community is divided into Squads by floor. There are 12 Squads of approximately 30 to 65 residents. These Squads have their own representatives called Squad Leaders. Are you new? Then the Squad leader will guide you through the ‘wonderful world’ of the Startmotor.

Share your knowledge and passion

There are also committees with various themes within the Startmotor. Think of film, social impact, garden, activities, sports committee, book club, walking group, and so on. Everything that makes and keeps life great can and may be picked up. You can use it to build a network of (business) friends for now and for later.

Community Spaces

Each floor also has its own Community Space with a theme that invites you to engage in activities with fellow residents. Discover the gigantic roof terrace with lounge where you can cook and eat together or come here for a Friday afternoon snack with a view over the city. Or go to the living room on the ground floor where you can meet, work or create.

The possibilities for sports are also endless. Discover the iconic sports roof on the 10th floor for a game of football, basketball or volleyball with Rotterdam 360 degrees around you.

The event roof is furnished with calisthenics racks, suitable for boot camps, freerunning or a quiet yoga class. If that wasn’t enough, the Startmotor also has its own gym and cardio room.

Another eye-catcher is the DIY space at the cellar of the building. Here you can carveand create and indulge your technical passion. Alone or together with your fellow residents. As you can see, the spaces and therefore the possibilities are almost endless. There is always something to do in the Startmotor!

Community manager Nerima

As mentioned, the Startmotor has facilities that invite to community building. The Community Manager is there to facilitate and communicate initiatives together with the residents.

“Hi! My name is Nerima and I am the Community Manager at the Startmotor. As a community manager, I make residents enthusiastic and ensure that they create positive experiences within the community. I am your point of contact and help you to set up your initiative or ideas for the community!”

The Startmotor App

The Startmotor has its own community app. Within this app, all kinds of information and activities are shared in the calendar. This way everyone is always aware of what is going on in the building and in the community. Here residents can communicate with each other and find each other based on their profile.

Residents can write a bio on their profile. This allows other residents to see what your interests are. In addition, it is possible to pass on repairs of the building or of your own studio to the caretakers via the app.
