Are you looking for a student flat for rent in Bydgoszcz? In this Polish city, you will find two types of apartments: studio flats for one or two people (ideally couples) and flats with more rooms to share between several students. Pay attention to the characteristics of each apartment, most of them are furnished and with the basic appliances to move into (such as a refrigerator, oven or washing machine), but some of them do not include furniture.

Young people from previous years ensure that your roommates quickly become your Erasmus family.
Most of the available and verified rooms that you can see in the Erasmus Play housing search engine have everything a student needs, such as a bed, bedding, wardrobe, desk and study chair. However, each of them has different characteristics, so we suggest that you investigate well what each one includes.
