Housing in Madrid


One of the most important decisions you will have to make when coming to Madrid is deciding where and how you want to live. Probably for quite a few of you, your apartment in Madrid will be your first experience living “alone“. This can be very exciting but also overwhelming.

Where do you start? How much is reasonable when it comes to rent? What neighbourhood should you choose? Where can you search and what options do you have? How to find roommates to share an apartment? What do you need to know about your housing contract? Do you need to set up internet? The list of questions is probably long, but before you start to get nervous and stressed, don’t worry, we are here to help you answer ALL of these questions! 🙂
