This is not going to be an easy task. Normally residences have long waiting lists to obtain a place for the next course and many of their places are reserved for national students. Therefore, one of the best options for Erasmus students and international students is to share a flat or rent a student apartment. In general, the monthly budget for sharing a house will be lower than that of a residence. Also, from a personal point of view, this will allow you to mature much more since you will have to be self-sufficient and responsible.

To find a quality residence, we recommend that you compare with time and do it proactively since each residence will have its pros and cons and it is important that you know them.

Erasmus housing in Santiago de Compostela

One of the main problems of every Erasmus student is finding quality accommodation to carry out their mobility program. This is not always an easy task. Depending on the destination city, the search for Erasmus accommodation is complicated. The aim of Erasmus Play is to help these students (who do not know the city) to compare the entire offer of rooms and apartments for students easily and quickly.

There are two types of Erasmus students: those who are only going to study for a semester and who are looking for accommodation for approximately 4 months and those who will stay the entire academic year, who generally seek accommodation for 10 months (September-June).

Normally, students who stay only for one semester finds it difficult than the rest to find accommodation, because the owners prefer to rent a full academic year than just 4 months. This is why Erasmus Play was born, to also help these students who stay for a semester and need to find accommodation just like the rest of their classmates.

Finding a roommate for your Erasmus stay is hard since you probably don't know anyone in the city you are going to. Currently, Erasmus students meet other students to find accommodation through social media such as facebook, instagram or whatsapp. In general, these students are of the same nationality as you. And therefore, if you live with them, you will not practice the language you want to learn, either Spanish, English, etc. We recommend that you look for roommates of different nationalities, this will allow you to discover new cultures, learn languages ​​and make friends from all over the world.

At Erasmus Play we have a wide variety of accommodation for students, where you can rent rooms in shared flats and apartments with other international students since all flats are aimed at students.
