In The Hague, the Netherlands, there is an apartment building for college students which has been built by a high school. College students can pay the rent in kind. In return for a flat, the renters has to teach classes at the high school which owns the building, for eight hours a week. Apparently this was a very attractive deal, since in no time 20 out of 26 flats were occupied within no time.
