Finding accommodation in a foreign country can get time consuming and nerve wrecking. Student residences solve these problems as they provide everything you will need. Even though they might cost a bit more, living with other students can be worth it. We collected some benefits as well as put together a list of the best student residences in Barcelona!

1. Saving time

Searching for a place to rent can be time consuming as you have to find something that meets all of your needs. Contacting people, while sometimes not even getting an answer can be frustrating as well.

2. Not being affected by fraud

Unless you have friends in Barcelona or already are in the city, it can be hard to be sure that the place you are about to rent actually exists as there are always scammers, even on professional websites. With student residences you can start your travels without worrying.

3. (Almost) everything included

Beside the room the costs for water, electricity or WIFI as well as activity options are included in the price. All the rooms will also be fully furnished and equipped.

4. Safety and Assistance

Big cities can be unsafe in some places. Therefore, many student residences have 24 hour security for you to feel safer in your new home. Also, there will be assistance to help you at any time.

5. Bunch of activity options

Many residences have bars, a pool, gym or even cinemas. You do not have to search for good ones whenever you arrive, there are already waiting for you to try them out.

6. Great community

As student residences often provide common areas you will never be alone. Right from the beginning you will have other students from all over the world to connect with.
