Most popular student rooms for rent in Barcelona

Studying in Barcelona? Smart move.

There's so much happening in this city. Explore Gaudí’s masterworks by day. Party at the beach as the Iberian sun sets. It’s a historic spot. But youthful exuberance and fun are never in short supply.

Students live all over the city, but Gràcia, El Born, and L’Esquerra are hot spots with lively bars and restaurants. The main universities: University of Barcelona (UB); Universitat Autónoma de Barcelona; and Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya.

What neighbourhood is student friendly in Barcelona?

There are quite a few options for students, but we recommend El Raval. It's got a young, creative vibe and is a great place to be if you want to immerse yourself in the city's indie music scene and nightlife. Plus, it has plenty of affordable eateries and bars—perfect for a cash-strapped college student.

What is the average price of a student room in Barcelona?

The average student room in our Barcelona listings costs €605/month, but you can find rooms for as low as €325/month. This cost is based on the most current data we have available.

Why choose a student room in Barcelona?

A student room is a small, private bedroom in an apartment shared by four or six students. The advantage of a student room is that it is more convenient to live with other students, especially at the beginning of your stay. For example, if you are moving to Barcelona and you do not know anyone here yet, it will be easier to meet other people and make new friends if you live in a student room. If you live in a shared flat with other international students, they can help you get oriented and introduce you to their friends from home as well as from the university. Living in a student room allows you to integrate yourself into the local culture and improve your language skills much more quickly than if you lived alone. Many students choose to live in a student room during their first semester abroad and then move into their own apartments for the rest of their studies. However, others prefer to stay in a shared flat (also known as a ""shared flat"") for the entire time because they have made good friends with whom they can share day-to-day living expenses such as food shopping, cooking, cleaning and laundry.

Is Barcelona Expensive for students?

Barcelona is an expensive city, especially for students. The average monthly rent for a single room in a shared apartment is around €350, which will probably be more than half of your monthly budget. However, there are many ways in which you can lower the cost of rent and other expenses for your stay in Barcelona. Renting out a private room instead of a whole apartment can cut your monthly expenses. While renting out an entire apartment is convenient, it will inevitably hurt your wallet. In addition, consider living with roommates to lower your rent even further. Food is another area where you can save money. Instead of buying expensive food from grocery stores, consider eating at some of Barcelona's many tapas bars or outdoor markets. For example, Boqueria Market offers quality produce and has dozens of small restaurants that offer cheap meals with fresh ingredients. Although Barcelona is known for its delicious seafood, avoid buying fish unless it's on special offer - otherwise it might be too expensive to afford on a student budget. If you're looking to go out at night, head down to the many clubs on the beach strip near Barceloneta metro station. They tend to be cheaper than clubs in other parts of the city and offer fantastic views during sunrise if you stay.
