The best neighborhood if you come to Barcelona to study

Barcelona is an excellent city to live in with a very pleasant climate practically all year round and with all the comforts of a cosmopolitan city. If you are thinking of coming to Barcelona for a while this article will interest you as we show you how to decide where to live in the city.

Looking for an apartment on your own requires knowledge about the different neighbourhoods of the city as prices vary considerably depending on the area. It is highly recommended that you start your search before you arrive in the city. For us, the idea is to arrive a couple of weeks before you start your commitments in the city to find the ideal apartment for months or to finalize the rental arrangements. With this in mind, you can rent an apartment for days in Barcelona for this initial period.

Barcelona is divided in 10 districts, each one has its own citizen attention office where you will be able to manage all the administrative paperwork upon your arrival, such as registration. The most important thing is to be clear about how important is for you the proximity to your place of work or studies. If you come to study the most interesting neighbourhoods are Sant Gervasi, El Putxet, Gràcia and Eixample, as the best universities in the city are located in these neighbourhoods.

For example, if you are a student of ESADE the best alternative will be an apartment in the neighbourhood of Sant Gervasi. Likewise, for students looking for accommodation at the EU Business School the Sant Gervsi neighbourhood is also the best option. On the other hand, for students looking for accommodation near ESERP or Ostelea, the best option will be in the Eixample neighbourhood.
