Meet other Viaflats Residents
Imagine landing in Milan for your Erasmus. You get off the plane, take your luggages, get welcomed by your Viaflats local community manager and head to your new home.
But let’s face it, when you arrive to a new city it can sometimes feel a little bit overwhelming. What is the best place to eat? Where should you buy your groceries? Where do other new arrivants go out?
With Viaflats Assembly, we want to change that. On a regular basis, we organise events, be it sport events, interesting talks with speakers, cooking sessions, or simply attending amazing welcome parties, you name it.
We want to create a big family and want you to be part of it.
Here is a sneak peek at what we have prepared you :-)
From themed nights to club nights, we try to organise regular memorable parties with our Viaflats residents.
We usually organise a city run in the park at the beginning of each year in order to discover the city in a fun way. In the summer we try to go swimming at a pond or eat together in the various parcs of our cities.
Let’s get to know each other! Every 3 months we organise a gathering for all our new residents so that we can be introduced to each other.
Viaflats Bus Trips
Twice a year, we organise a bus trip to a nearby city (we will visit Den Haag this year!) and stay the whole weekend there. The other time of the year, we organise a 5 days ski trip for our residents.
We have good deals with local gyms and usually organise Squash and various other sport events all year long.
Conferences, Pitches & Talks
Once a year we try to invite some great speakers to talk about any interesting subjects (politics, history, entrepreneurship, art, …) and we also give you some discounts to some interesting local conferences or events.
Viaflats for Geeks
There is no place like 127.0.0.1. Unleash the geek that is in you! Our team loves spending our Sunday’s playing Project Reality, Call of Duty, Mario Kart, or learning how to code.
(This activity is for now only available in Maastricht at our headquarters)
This one has a huge success in Liège! Regularly, we organise nice pub crawls with our members.
Quizzes & Trivia Nights
Show us who’s the boss ! We organise cool trivia & quizzes nights where you can compete. If you beat our community manager, we offer you some Viaflats booking credits ;-)
