Student apartments for rent in Maribor

There are two types of student rental apartments that are very different from each other.

Many students choose to rent shared apartments. This option is not only economical, since the rent is divided among everyone living there, but it also offers a great opportunity to socialise and meet other students. Apartments are usually furnished and equipped with the necessities for daily life.

For those seeking more independence, renting a studio apartment is a good option. While it may be more expensive, it provides greater privacy, something many may prefer.

Student rooms for rent in Maribor

Rooms in this Slovenian city can be either individual or shared. The latter are usually cheaper than the former, but have less privacy and time to be alone. In addition, rooms can be part of both private shared apartments and university residences.

Remember that it’s important to review and understand the terms of the rental agreement, including the duration, additional costs (such as utilities, internet, and electricity if not included in the price), and the conditions of the security deposit that’s usually required.
