A private alternative to student housing

Are you a student or on erasmus and are coming to Barcelona for a semester, year, or a couple of months to study? Are you looking for student accommodation at a good price? Unlike with student housing, having your own apartment or sharing with people you know allow for a more comfortable stay. Below on this page we offer you rentals with an excellent price to quality ratio.

How are our student apartments in Barcelona?

Barcelona isn't the cheapest city in Europe, so we offer rentals at a student budget. This page features a selection of monthly rentals aimed at students, which are completely furnished and equipped, while most of the flats include internet and washing machines. Keep in mind that deposit are refunded, but not included in the price. There are even some student flats with a terrace or balcony so you can enjoy the sun for most of the year.

The best neighbourhoods for students in Barcelona

The location is important when renting a flat. We offer accommodation in the best neighbourhoods for students in Barcelona:

  • Ciutat Vella - Here you'll be by the sea, amongst charming and narrow streets. This lively area is ideal for students who want to enjoy Barcelona's nightlife. There's a lot of history here - many flats are renovated in older buildings. You'll find the Geography and History faculties of the University of Barcelona and Pompeu Fabra University.
  • Eixample - Twentieth Century district with perfectly aligned blocks. It's by the centre making it ideal for students needing access to university easily via public transport. It's known for its modernist architecture and features works from Gaudí like La Pedrera. It's a neighbourhood loaded with history that you can enjoy everyday. Eixample is home to the Management faculties of Pompeu Fabra University and Open University of Catalonia, nearby to the School of Tourism, Music, and others. There is also a historic building from the University of Barcelona.
  • Sant Martí - Near the beach, this residential area is ideal for students looking for cheap accommodation. It has a multicultural environment, away from tourist attractions it gives an authentic Barcelona feel. You can reach the centre in a few minutes with public transport. This area is full of tapas restaurants and the Glories Shopping Centre. Here you can find the campuses of the University of Barcelona, Open University of Catalonia and Pompeu Fabra University. There is also the ESDesign School (Escuela Superior de Diseño).
  • Gràcia-Sarrià - To the north of Barcelona, away from the tourist attractions of the city, you will find an authentic and lively atmosphere with many restaurants, bars and shops close to your apartment. This an ideal area to live within. Gràcia is the location for the Law, Economic and Social Science campuses; and to the south there is Experimental sciences, Pharmacology, and Fine Arts - all from from the University of Barcelona. There are also campuses from the Open University of Catalonia and International University of Catalonia, as well as Ramon Llull University's Chemisty Institute (IQS - Instituto Quimico de Sarria).
  • Les Corts. This district is where you will find Barcelona's zona universitaria (university zone). There is the Polytechnic University of Catalonia (UPC) Law campus known as ESADE, as well as Fine Arts, Physics, Chemistry, and many more. In this area there are many apartments, bars, restaurants and locales that cater to the abundance of students by offered lower prices. There is also Camp Nou Stadium from FC Barcelona where you can go to watch live matches or make a tour. Les Corts is close to Sants station where you'll find many transport options not just to get you around Barcelona, but even Spain.

Why study in Barcelona?

Barcelona is one of the most innovative cities for education in Europe and welcomes thousands of new students to its universities and business schools each year. The city has a size that allows you to get anywhere via public transport in less than 45 minutes from your apartment. Its ideal location will give you the opportunity to enjoy a pleasant climate all the year round and escape to the beach or the mountain when you want to get away from the frantic atmosphere of the city. It's quite common in Barcelona to share student accommodation with people from other countries, so you can enjoy a multicultural environment at your apartment and university. Barcelona is a mixture of flavours, colours and ideas in constant movement, you'll always find a place to go out to party or grab a drink with friends anywhere.

Practical advice for students to save money

Once you've found your accommodation, it's important to know some tips to save. Barcelona is a metropolitan city that's very well connected by public transport with a great variety of tariffs. If you choose accommodation near your university or place of work then we recommend that you buy a T-10 ticket for €9.95 that allows you to make 10 trips during an unlimited period of time. If you travel at least twice a day, to locations other than your Masters or Erasmus course (for example on weekends), it's recommended that you buy a quarterly travel-card that allows you to make all the trips you want for 3 months for €105 if you're under 25.

Another way to save money is to be smart when shopping, knowing which supermarkets, restaurants, bars and other cheap places you have near your student flat. We recommend that you look for supermarkets like Mercadona, Consum and Carrefour for its wide variety of products at very competitive prices. Also, avoid tourist areas to eat as they typically charge a higher price. Although the best way to save is to eat at your apartment or take something prepared to the University.

You can consult our guide and community for various articles on studying in Barcelona, where we give more tips and reveal our favourite places to enjoy university life without having to stay penniless.
