Barcelona’s best areas to find a student apartment

Barcelona has a large number of residential areas, with all kinds of services, very good connection to the transport network, and proximity to many points of interest.

Thanks to the great versatility of the city, there are many areas that could be interesting to install, but when choosing the ideal area to live in, it is necessary to take into account a number of factors. Here are some of them:

  • Closeness to the place of work or study.
  • Connection to the public transport network.
  • Services in the area, such as supermarkets and other commercial surfaces, health centers, gyms, etc.
  • Other factors: District prices, security, parking availability, etc.

If you can't decide on a particular area, we hope to be able to help you with the following recommendations where we have fully equipped accommodation, so that you can enjoy your stay in Barcelona to the fullest.

Which are the best areas to live?

  1. Eixample

Living in L'Eixample is living in one of the most attractive districts of Barcelona. Not in vain, it is the most populated in the Ciudad Condal and the one that occupies the central part of it. This has a modern architecture in which the houses open to the street stand out thanks to its many windows and balconies. Due to its central location, its inhabitants have everything close by. For example, the district has seven primary care centers, nine municipal libraries. To these are added numerous universities and study centers such as BSM, EAE, EADA, Mediterrani, etc.

If you want to have everything close by, we recommend that you stay in our modernist building, located in the heart of l'Eixample on Balmes street. 

  1. Sarria - Sant Gervasi

The Sarrià / Sant Gervasi district is one of the neighborhoods whose inhabitants have the highest income level in the region. The quality of life in this upper area of ??the city is impeccable and therefore, the preferred one for many people who seek tranquility and security without leaving the energy of Barcelona. Also, if you like nature, the Sarrià and Sant Gervasi neighborhood is ideal for living. Thanks to its many natural and urban parks it is to enjoy a pleasant walk. Likewise, it is worth taking a detour and visiting the Jardin del Turó del Putxet with incredible views of Barcelona. Very close to the park and in the heart of the Putxet neighborhood, we have a building that will conquer you for its majesty and common areas. In the same district, a few steps from Avenida Diagonal, we also have a building that will surprise you with its huge windows and its magnificent location. 

  1. Sants

The Sants-Montjuïc district is eminently residential, quiet and with good connections to the rest of the city and beyond. The Sants station (AVE) and the proximity of the Barcelona-El Prat airport are particularly noteworthy. Despite the differences between some neighborhoods and others, it is a family district, with a good educational offer, green areas and leisure.

If Sants is your preferred option, we recommend that you stay in this exclusive building for students and young professionals. 

  1. Ciutat Vella

This district may not be the quietest, and it stands out for its high number of tourists, but Ciutat Vella is much more than that. It is an area full of history, charm, art and culture, diversity and cosmopolitanism. It is the center of everything that happens in Barcelona. Not only Barcino was born here, but also the industrial era.

If the history of its streets and the multitude of restaurants and shops have stolen your heart, we have a completely renovated design building that you are going to love.

In addition to these factors, and taking into account that we are at a time when teleworking and virtual classes have become our day to day, it is very important to consider other aspects such as the state of the house, its equipment and the areas Common Having a good study or work space is essential to be able to have an adequate performance. For this reason, from Barcelona Student Housing, we equip all our apartments with high-speed internet, large desks in the rooms, table lamps and pleasant and bright common areas to ensure the comfort of all our residents.
