Madrid Student Rentals is a big city and there are a lot of different accommodation options, so it’s important to choose wisely. It’s best to pick a neighborhood that’s close to your university. For example, the centric areas of La Latina and Malasana offer everything from cool vintage shops to buzzing tapas bars. Or, the student neighborhood of Lavapies is all about edgy art exhibitions and lively bars.
The other option is renting a room in one of the many student residences in Madrid. This is a bit more expensive than sharing an apartment, but it allows you to live in a community of fellow students and you’ll also have access to amenities such as a library, gym or chill-out areas.
Madrid Magic: The Ins and Outs of Student Rentals in the Spanish Capital
In our experience, most young internationals find that living in a shared flat or a student residence is the easiest way to settle into their new home. This option allows them to feel at ease with the language, the culture, and the everyday life in Spain.
Another option is to rent a premium apartment, where you’ll have a private bedroom and share all other living spaces with 2-8 other people (depending on the property). You can expect elevated amenities such as a dishwasher or a washing machine, and thoughtfully designed common spaces that make it easy to study or hang out. Plus, in the heart of historic Madrid you’ll be just a short walk from your university and all that the city has to offer.
