Location and price of a flat for students in Madrid
Studying and living in another country is an important investment that, with a little planning, you can get the best out of it. In addition to the cost of enrollment in the program you are going to take and the plane ticket, you should consider other expenses that you will have during your study stay: accommodation (the most important), food, services, transportation, clothing and footwear, and leisure.
In general, Madrid is not an expensive city, compared to other European capitals. The city is very well prepared to receive students, with a wide range of services for all budgets. Everything will depend on the comfort you are looking for and the budget you have. The month of September arrives and with it the beginning of the school year. At this time, there are many students, university or postgraduate, who pack to another city to face the academic year. Although rental prices are constantly rising throughout the country, this is the formula students use to live during the year. Among the parameters that you have to prevail in your search should be, of course, the price. Remember that not all neighborhoods start from the same average rental price. If you have a tighter budget, this can condition your choice quite a bit.
To give you an idea, these are the reference price ranges we have found:
- Room in shared apartment with shared room: 500 to 650 euros / month
- Room in shared flat with single room: 650 to 1200 euros / month
- Study: 900 to 1,200 euros / month
- Apartment: 900 to 1,300 euros / month
Closeness to your university
Other factors should be the proximity to the university. If Madrid is internationally known for its famous squid sandwich, its jams are less well known but much less palatable. Calculate the distance to which the university is and how long it would take to reach. You may find that perhaps locating your student accommodation elsewhere would be more profitable. In addition to these two obvious factors, be sure to inform yourself about access to other basic services such as public transport, proximity to supermarkets and other convenience stores and of course the availability of libraries and other places of interest.
Madrid areas for students
The first of all that you have to consider to rent a home is the type you want. That is, in what areas you want to live, what is the maximum price willing to pay (for this it is also important to have an x-ray of the rental prices of the area), the size of the house and its characteristics. In this last point would enter the number of rooms, bathrooms, whether it is furnished or not, if the house has an elevator or the type of energy certificate it has (it is mandatory that all homes have it).
If you have already made your decision and are looking for something in the center, fix your attention on Sol which is the center itself and therefore you have access to everything at all times, and Atocha although keep in mind that the latter will be a little more expensive . They are very interesting neighborhoods that being located in the center have prices more available to students.
