Madrid is one of the main European university cities and has a total of 14 universities (eight private and six public). Both Spanish and foreign students choose the Spanish capital as a place to study not only for the quality of teaching, but also for its great cultural and leisure offer and good nightlife. For something Madrid is the favorite university destination of Erasmus students.
One of the main concerns of every student who moves to Madrid is to find accommodation that fits their needs. Although sharing a flat is common among undergraduates of recent school years, first-time students tend to opt for student residences.
ADVANTAGES OF STUDENT RESIDENCES
Residences offer many advantages to newcomers to a large city. In many university residences you can choose between private or shared rooms, so they are a good option for open and sociable people as well as for the more introverted or simply independent. Some student residences have a communal kitchen and dining room, ideal for those who do not manage in the kitchen or want to have as much time as possible to study without worrying about the meals.
Another great advantage is that they encourage student interaction, which is very positive for those who leave their home and city for the first time. Sharing a room, dining room or study room helps to get to know people quickly and to feel motivated and integrated into university life.
