Despite not having the official neighborhood recognition (belongs to Justicia), Chueca is one of the most charming neighborhoods of Madrid. It is located in the center of the city and its main axes are Plaza de Chueca and Calle de Fuencarral . Here you can find many bars and clubs, as well as bookstores, cafes and designer shops. It is characterized a marked multicultural environment that has not lost its traditional essence. At the time the festival hosts the Gay Pride celebrations.
In Chueca there are no headquarters of the main universities in Madrid, although it is very convenient for those who study fashion or design, since both the IED Design Superior Center and the IADE Design School are not far away, about 15 minutes on foot. Its central location makes reaching major universities relatively easy. The metro ride from Alonso Martínez to Ciudad Universitaria, where the Complutense, Polytechnic and UNED are located, takes 34 minutes (line 4 and then 6). From Chueca you can reach the Autonomous University in 43 minutes with the Cercanías train from Recoletos, changing lines in Nuevos Ministerios. Also from Recoletos you can go with the Cercanías train to the Carlos III University Campus in Getafe in about 40 minutes.
FLATS FOR STUDENTS IN CHUECA
Living in the heart of Madrid and being able to travel to the university easily by public transport is a great plus for university students, many of whom are looking for an apartment in Chueca. You can choose a single or double room in a shared flat or, if you have a bigger budget, rent a studio or a single room for yourself and enjoy greater independence. Uniplaces has a wide range of rooms for students in Chueca for you to choose from.
Chueca is well connected by public transport with the rest of Madrid. The main metro stop is Chueca (line 5), although other nearby stops are less than 10 minutes away, such as Alonso Martínez (lines 4, 5 and 10) or Gran Vía (lines 1 and 5). The Recoletos station, a short 8 minutes walk from Chueca, is very useful and convenient to travel to areas further away from the city with the Cercanías train and universities like the Autonomia or the Getafe campus of the Carlos III University.
Uniplaces is creating a trusted brand for students everywhere. We believe in making finding accommodation better. We want students to have a great experience when they book a place, when they move in, and every day that they spend there. At the same time, we're always looking for trustworthy landlords who can help us deliver this great experience. We've moved the whole process of finding, choosing and booking online. It's our way of turning an old-fashioned market upside-down. It's our way of changing the world.
At Uniplaces we make the process of booking an apartment as easy as possible for both tenant and landlord.
That's why we have our own team of professional photographers that verify our properties and pick our landlords carefully in order to save time on viewings: we think it’s old-fashioned and time-consuming.
You can look at forty different apartments on our platform in the same amount of time that it takes to see a room.
The pictures you see here haven’t been photoshopped, so they’ll be really accurate.
If you’ve still got any doubts, we’ll keep the money that you transfer us until 24h after your move-in date.
If something’s not exactly what you saw online, we’ll help you move somewhere else and return your money.
We can only give you the contact details of your landlord after your booking is accepted. But we can guarantee that Uniplaces chooses the landlords it works with very carefully.
Besides, we’ve had students whose favourite part was living with a local!
Landlords and host families can be great city guides, help you out with translations and even become your friends.
As soon as your booking is accepted, you're given the landlord’s contact details. Then, you can discuss all details directly with them, such as when you’ll be moving-in.
Students move in and out at different times, so your flatmates might change during your stay.
It’s a great opportunity to make new friends!
We personally speak to students who we place in Uniplaces apartments and are sure we will find the right place for you as well!
At the bottom of the property page, you have a calendar where you can see the availability of that room/apartment, according to the landlord.
But if you’re still unsure about that we’re happy to help.
Tell us your move-in and move-out dates and we will double-check if the place is available for you!
There are two different types of deposits: the Holding and Security deposits.
By clicking on “Deposit” at the bottom of the offer page you will get more information about each type of deposit.
In general, the deposit is paid to cover for any potential damages that may occur during your period of stay or will be used as rent compensation in case you leave earlier than originally planned.
If no damages occur and you leave on the agreed move-out date, your deposit should be refunded by the landlord in a way you both agree on.
