A private alternative to student housing

What are the student housing options in Barcelona?

As a student-friendly city, Barcelona offers a wide range of options of housing for people coming here to study, for a semester, year or even couple of months. The main options are:

  • Rent from your university campus if they have their own property available
  • Find a flatshare with fellow students
  • Rent cheap student accommodation privately by month

Are you looking for student accommodation at a good price? Unlike with student housing, having your own apartment or sharing with people you know allows for a more comfortable stay. On this page we offer you rentals with an excellent price to quality ratio at a student budget.

Should you find a room in a student flatshare or rent an apartment privately in Barcelona?

Both are valid options. Finding a room in an existing flatshare with other students is good if you want to meet new people, but remember that you will have to share a place with people whom you may not necessarily get along with for the entire duration of your stay. Sometimes this can be perfectly fine; other times there can be conflicts and drama between roommates with distinct lifestyles. It's not uncommon. Renting a student apartment privately means you have full independence and control over your own home, allowing you to enjoy Barcelona to the fullest in the way that suits you. And you can invite people over when you want.

Can tenants flatshare with other students renting through OK Apartment?

If you are coming to Barcelona with friends or you find fellow students beforehand, it's perfectly fine to rent your private student accommodation to flatshare with other roommates. If you are already at the apartment and you would like to invite a new roommate to share the costs with, this is normally always possible, you'd simply have to inform the landlord and make the arrangements. Landlords in Barcelona are typically content with students flatsharing as it means tenants can cover the rent more easily.

How much does private student accommodation cost?

Costs are all-inclusive. The rent, bills, agency fee and maintenance are all included in the price. Simply make a search using the search box at the top of the page and you can see the final cost of the entire stay. The deposit is apart from this price as it is refunded at the end of the stay.

Where are the best places to find student accommodation in Barcelona?

The best areas to stay are those that already have an established student population. This means areas where there is an important university or some of the cheaper and non-central areas. Here are some of the areas where students prefer to rent an apartment in Barcelona:

Gràcia-Sarrià

Gracia and Sarria have an authentic and lively atmosphere with many restaurants, bars and shops. 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).

Eixample

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. This neighbourhood is 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.

Les Corts — Zona Universitaria

This is the university zone of the city and is where many of the city's institutes are located, in fact practically all of Barcelona universities have a campus here, including La Politécnica, La Autónoma, Universitat de Barcelona, Ramon Llull and more. It is a calm area with many places to study at, including libraries and peaceful parks. It's also conveniently home to Camp Nou Football Stadium, so you can take advantage and go watch a live match with FC Barcelona. There are also many shopping centres and a large supermarket, so you'll have no shortage of places to go shopping.

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).
