If you are one of those who are going to change city or country in the first stage of your university career, making sure you choose the right accommodation will be something very important that will take away your sleep.
University residences or shared flats in Barcelona tend to become one of the most common options because of the security in the first place and secondly because of all the comforts and benefits they provide. We cannot forget the young university students and workers who, even though they are over 30 years old, still do not have enough purchasing power to buy or rent their own home and see in the shared flat the best option to become independent.
Meeting people and making friends very quickly. The first few days are the ideal time to interact with your university mates. If you are unable to establish a relationship that goes beyond academics in class, your roommates can become a fundamental pillar of your social life. Having roommates means fighting loneliness, as they can be key to integrating and getting to know the city where you will be living.
Save money. The main advantage of a student flat in Barcelona is the savings it offers compared to living alone. If you are also a student and you work, you don't want to leave a large part of your salary in a rent, and this will be the main reason why you decide to share a flat. Another saving that occurs when you have a flatmate is the saving of time in all the domestic tasks, since you usually organize shifts to distribute the tasks, and thus, have more free time. In a shared flat, the rental expenses are shared among the inhabitants of the flat, or they are included in the price: electricity, water and heating, so that at the end of the month, the savings with regard to an individual dwelling are quite considerable.
Personal maturity: Sharing a flat with more people will help you to mature and grow, you must learn to live with other students, to share, to be more tolerant and respectful or respectful of others, to be more flexible and of course, to be more independent.
Knowing other cultures and languages. If you are lucky enough to share a flat with students from other countries, something very common in our student flats in Barcelona, you will be able to get to know other cultures, new dishes, customs, languages, etc. Moreover, if you make good friends with one of them you will be guaranteed free accommodation to visit other countries.
For all these reasons and many others, we are convinced that the experience of sharing a student flat in Barcelona, if you are a university student and arrive in Barcelona for the first time to study, can be more than positive.
