In the Netherlands, the cohabitation of several persons in one flat is not as common as in Germany, Austria or Switzerland. Since the 1960s, it has mainly been practised by students in the Netherlands. Dutch "studentenhuizen" (literally: student houses) can best be described as a residential community for certain purposes (often in student dorms), "woongroepen" (residential groups) rather than as "communes". Unlike in Germany, you will rarely find any mixed forms. If you are looking for a shared flat or a house to share with other students in Vaals, just search for a home near Aachen / Vaals.
