A good 'kot' has the Kotlabel!
Is it possible to spot a quality kot at first glance? Absolutely! KU Leuven, the city of Leuven and LOKO joined forces to create the Kotlabel for students in search of housing.
What is the kotlabel?
A Kotlabel is a label featuring a blue or green K that is attached to the front of a building. It indicates that the kot meets the necessary standards for quality, fire safety, contract quality, and student-friendliness. A blue or green label always means you’re safe.
What is the difference between a blue and green label?
The blue label means buildings meet the criteria set by the KU Leuven Housing Service. The green label indicates buildings which meet the more strict criteria set by the City of Leuven, in addition to the aforementioned criteria of the blue label. The content of the various criteria can be found on the website of the KU Leuven Housing Service.
All the kots you find on Kotwijs meet the criteria of the blue label!
