Student Apartments in Barcelona

Barcelona is one of the best cities in Europe to live your student life either your university is here or you’re doing an Erasmus internship. Still, to live in Barcelona is not so cheap. Especially, the rental costs are quite high compared with the rest of Spain. But don’t worry! There are good student apartments in Barcelona at a low price.

Every year thousands of students decide to do their Erasmus in Barcelona. This entails finding an accommodation option for a period of few months that is well located and not too costly, something easy to do here.

Barcelona has also become an extremely popular destination among students as once lessons are over, they can easily reach the beach; the city offers 4.5 km of sandy beach where they can sunbathe, practice volleyball or go for a swim in the sea. Along the beach they can also go roller-skating, skateboarding or just running. A wide choice of cultural activities are also available with the many museums, festivals and concerts of all sorts.


Furthermore students will not be disappointed by the Barcelona nightlife: there are lots of different options among the cheap bars and clubs. Going for drinks can be done on the cheap, and a great variety of nice places offer budget options in different neighborhoods of the city, such as Gracia (the University student area by excellence).

Club-crawling in Barcelona is not expensive either: check out the beach clubs located in Vila Olimpica if you like commercial dance/electro music; electronic lovers can go to Appolo, Moog or Razzmatazz. If they listen to Spanish music they should go Bling Bling or LaFira.

They will also get to enjoy are many excellent restaurants that still remain affordable; they can try brunch in the Born or Gracia as they have special offers for University students. When moving to Barcelona many students want to learn the Spanish language as well. Barcelona offers a really diverse and wide range of Spanish language courses, not just grammar or boring classes. Also, in Barcelona you can attend cooking classes (for example in LaBoquería), go surfing in the sea on trekking on Monjuic or Tibidabo.
