Student Accommodation in Barcelona


While a great deal of your time at European College Barcelona will be occupied with classes, projects and papers, there will be lots of opportunities for you to enjoy the city lifestyle. Bicycling, jogging, skateboarding and roller blading in and around the city are highly recommendable, as is relaxing on the miles of sandy coastline that border the region.

Before deciding where to live in Barcelona, you can consult with the European College Barcelona  Administration Department about the history and safety of the each neighborhood. We have a lot of connections with residencies and will be able to help you find the most suitable student accommodation in Barcelona. It is advisable to begin searching for accommodation immediately after receiving an acceptance letter.

An apartment close to the European College Barcelona campus will save travel time and public transport costs. In order to focus on studies, we do not advise renting an apartment in areas with a high density of bars, nightclubs or tourists, as this will prove more distracting than beneficial.

Student residences are a great accommodation option for students in Barcelona. Living in close proximity to other students helps students adapt to both the city and a new lifestyle. It’s a great opportunity for them to meet people from different backgrounds without having to worry about household chores.

Most apartments in Barcelona are rented through an agency (inmobiliaria), however renting from the owner generally saves tenants a lot of money in agency fees. Both agencies and owners usually require the first month’s rent plus a deposit in advance. Most agencies also charge an additional month’s rent as their fee. Other deposits may also be required, but should never be more than three months’ rent.

Remember that when looking for an apartment, it is important to clearly understand the terms and conditions of the rental agreement. If you do not speak Spanish, have a native speaker accompany you. Do not sign anything until the conditions of your lease are understood by both you and your landlord.
