*Last update:

Coimbra is a top destination for international students in Portugal. Its quality of life, education, and vibrant student atmosphere make it an ideal city to live in for a while. The city is lively both day and night, with the city centre full of bars, restaurants, and museums. Plus, with its low cost of living, you can have an amazing experience without breaking the bank!

Student apartments for rent in Coimbra

In this Portuguese city, you have two main options of flats for rent. Most exchange students going to Coimbra choose to share an apartment, as it is one of the best options to save on rent and meet new people. You can rent an apartment with multiple rooms and find roommates, or it’s even better if you already have friends who will be there and want to live together.

Another option is a studio apartment, which are compact spaces that include a bedroom, a kitchen, a bathroom, and sometimes a small living area. Studio apartments in Coimbra are usually more expensive than a shared apartment because you have to cover all costs yourself.

Student rooms for rent in Coimbra

The most common option is to find single rooms in shared apartments. These rooms offer privacy while allowing you to share common areas like the living room and kitchen with the rest of the roommates. The bathroom is usually shared too, although you can find some rooms that have an en suite bathroom.

In Coimbra, there are also shared rooms for two people, although this is not the most common type of accommodation in this Portuguese city. It is true that their cost is lower than that of single rooms, but it is more challenging to have privacy in them because you have to share all the spaces in the house. Think carefully if this is where you want to live!

Student flat in Coimbra

Here are some of the best areas to live in the Portuguese city during your studies:

Flats for rent in São Bartolomeu and Santa Cruz

These two neighbourhoods are part of the city centre of Coimbra and are popular areas among students due to their proximity to the main campus of the University of Coimbra and the most popular places where young people hangout. However, because of this, rents here may be a little higher than in the rest of the city.

Apartments in Bairro Sousa Pinto

This lively neighbourhood is another top choice for students. It’s home to many restaurants, bars, pubs, and stores frequented by students. Plus, the famous Praça da República, a favourite hangout spot among students, is also located here.

Rooms for rent in Rua Guerra Junqueiro

Many students considered this one of the best locations to live in Coimbra. It’s close to Praça da República and within walking distance to many places.

Erasmus accommodations near the University of Coimbra

This institution has three different campuses named pólos. To find convenient accommodation near campus, you need to figure out which one you’ll be attending.

And for Pólo II of Engineering at UC, Alto de São João is nearby. Learn more about convenient neighbourhoods to live near the University of Coimbra in this other article we wrote for you.

Student residences in Coimbra

In Coimbra, there are student residences that provide accommodation to their residents and many of them also offer additional services like cleaning and dining. Prices vary depending on the features of the residence, but they’re generally more expensive than living in a shared flat.
