If you’ve chosen this city for your studies, you’re likely searching for student accommodation in Budapest. This article covers everything you need to know about it: details about the available apartments and rooms, the best areas to find student housing, information about private and university-owned residences, and answers to the most frequently asked questions.

Student apartments for rent in Budapest

The Hungarian capital offers a variety of rental apartments, from compact studio apartments to larger apartments with multiple rooms. Besides location, pay close attention to the features and details of each apartment, as they can vary significantly. Some come fully furnished and include appliances like dishwashers and coffee makers, while others may not provide bedding or towels.

Student rooms for rent in Budapest

In Budapest, students most often choose single rooms in shared apartments or residences for their accommodation. These rooms offer privacy when needed and the opportunity to share common spaces with other residents.

Another option is to stay in shared bedrooms. Keep in mind that these can accommodate two, three, and even four people, so consider if you’re comfortable sharing your space with multiple students. Also, pay attention to the amenities: some shared rooms for four people might only have two desks, meaning you’d need to take turns using them.
