1. Don’t get lost in Valencia, there’s life away from the coastline!

Especially for those who aren’t used to living near the beach, it may seem idyllic to wake up and see the sea…but the fact is that you will not be always able to find a room or flat in this area of Valencia, depending on your budget and other preferences you may have. But don’t worry, because there’s much more to Valencia than the beach!

The city centre (around Colón Street) is quite busy and hosts tourists and locals alike, although it always remains nice to walk around. The biggest universities (UV Tarongers and Blasco Ibáñez Campus, and UPV) are pretty close to each other, so the eastern part of Valencia has a lively student life, both during the day and at night! In fact, each area has its own particular atmosphere. You may learn more about this city by reading our posts about Valencia.

2. Which student neighbourhood is best for you?

Each of the neighbourhoods for students in Valencia passes on a different feeling. Pla del Real is the most upscale neighbourhood around, whilst Ruzafa (or Russafa, in the local language) has undergone a process of gentrification and is now the trendiest area! Extramurs is a residential neighbourhood with a grid pattern and a mixed feeling to it, Ayora and Algirós are residential too and close to most universities, and Benimaclet is just like a village inside the town. And if you’re looking for something really authentic for your student housing in Valencia, then you will fall in love with Ciutat Vella (the Old City) and El Carmen, located within its boundaries.

3. Before you start looking for your new home…

Do a list! Yes, lists are cool 😉 What are you looking for? Would you like to choose one of the available rooms for rent? Or perhaps apartments for rent? What is your budget (including bills)? Write all of this down and it will be clear to you what you need. However, take into account that it’s not always possible to find a room or flat in Valencia which meets your requirements, so try to be flexible.

Finding your housing in Valencia for rent at a good price is easier in comparison to other Spanish cities, where the best offers get booked really quickly! But it’s still a good idea to start looking way in advance.
