Want to have social time? When you live with like-minded people in an inviting space, that will be easy. Need some more space for yourself sometimes? Of course, you can find that as well. The layouts of our apartments ensure that there is always plenty of space for you to recede to.
Making our members feel part of the community is our top priority, so we organize regular events for our members to participate in including board game nights and dinners.
🌍 Who can live in LifeX, and where do the members come from?
LifeX members come from all over the world and have a big range of professions. In all, we have 50+ nationalities with occupations ranging from tech, consulting, art, teaching, etc. Most members are between 25-35 yrs old, but we believe that age is just a number😉 . We love diversity and promote environments where members get to meet people from different backgrounds and broaden their horizon.
💵 How much does living in LifeX cost?
The monthly price depends on the city, the apartment, and the room.
You can see all our available rooms including the prices here. All prices are all-inclusive.
👌 What is included in the price?
Our prices are all-inclusive so you only need to pay two fixed amounts each month, one for housing and one for services, and don't need to worry about anything else. The price includes:

👨🔧 Other services: customer service, maintenance, flexibility, events and much more!
💵 How much is the deposit?
Our deposits vary from city to city and are generally a little bit less than one month's rent. The deposit will be refunded fully at the end of your stay, if the room is in the same state as when you moved in.
🚚 Do you charge any move-in fees?
We don't charge any move-in fees. To book a room, you only pay the rent for the first and last month*, and your deposit.
The first month is prorated, which means that if you can move in on any day of the month and you only pay for the days that you are actually staying with LifeX.
* This excludes London, where you only pay the first month and the deposit up front.
🗓️ What is the minimum stay?
Our minimum stay, in general, is three months. However, this may vary from city to city*. Of course, there is no upper limit - you can stay as long as you want!
Copenhagen: 3 months
London: 3 months
Paris: 3 months
Vienna: 3 months
Berlin: 3 months (can be 6 months depending on the home).
Munich: 6 months
We want to offer you flexibility, but nobody likes to live in a home that feels like a hotel where people come and go. By setting a minimum of 3 months, we try to prevent your current apartment from having too much turnover.
‼️ Kindly note that is a full calendar month, from the first to the last day of the month. If you move in on any other day of the month, you should count three extra months to complete the minimum stay.
For example: If you move in on the 1st of September, your minimum stay will be November 30. If you move in on September 2, 18 or 26, your minimum stay will be December 31. ‼️

This is your home, so you can definitely have guests come over as long as they stay only a few days (up to 5 days) and everyone in the home is fine with it.
