Students who are going to go to the Burjassot campus of the University of Valencia usually choose to live in this smaller city, because the cost of rent is generally cheaper than in the capital of the Autonomous Community. Likewise, international young people often select spare rooms in shared flats to live in, so that they can be connected with their flatmates as soon as they arrive in the city to avoid loneliness at the beginning of their stay. It is also the type of accommodation preferred by Spanish students, as it gives the possibility of living in a multicultural and more fun environment.
These are some pros and cons of living in a shared flat in the Spanish city:
Some apartments have large common spaces, and in some cases, the spare rooms also include access to a private balcony or a window with a nice view.
Valencians are usually very friendly and welcoming people, so if you are lucky enough to have one of them as your roommate, you can surely delve even deeper into the local culture.
If you want to rent an apartment with several spare rooms and look for your roommates yourself, you should know that it is not typically the easiest option to find.
The only space of your own will be your room, so make sure you make it comfortable and decorate it however you like.
In the apps for Erasmus+ you will find the possibility of carrying out procedures in the same application, answers to questions, different services, discounts and even experiences and tips from students from previous years. One of them is that you take advantage of your stay to taste the delicious local cuisine, such as paella or rice with beans and turnips.
In addition to befriending with your flatmates, we recommend that you consider some of the following ways to meet people in the Valencian city:
You will be able to join the branch of the Erasmus Student Network that the University of Valencia has and connect with other students by participating in the activities they organize. You will not have time to get bored with the number of events that you will be able to take part in!
Thanks to being so close to the city of Valencia, it is recommended to not only join the groups on the Burjassot campus, but also to take the opportunity to join the groups in the Valencian capital. In this way, you will be able to meet people from different careers, universities and nationalities, further expanding the circle of your friends.
As with the Facebook groups, the best thing you can do is join the WhatsApp groups that you find for both students in Burjassot and students in Valencia. In them, you can meet people who have similar interests to yours and with whom you can share different activities.
Keep these recommendations in mind to live in a student flat in the Valencian city:
If you are going to be in the city in March, you cannot miss the Fallas de Valencia. The positive thing about living in Burjassot is that you will be able to enjoy the festivities as long as you want and return to your flat which will be a quieter and less crowded area.
No matter what your native language is, we suggest you look for apartments where your roommates are of different nationalities, so you can learn other languages or teach yours to them.
