This city is located in southern Portugal along the coast, offering great weather all year round. Plus, it is one of the top destinations for many international students because of its culture, affordable cost of living, and quality of education. Vamos começar!

Student apartments for rent in Lisbon

In the Portuguese capital, you’ll find two main types of apartments. Some flats with multiple rooms to share among students, which is great for socialising and usually more economical as the costs are split among the tenants. These apartments usually come fully equipped with basics in both spare rooms and common areas (kitchen, bathroom, and living room).

Studio apartments, on the other hand, offer more privacy with a single space that includes a sleeping area, a living area, a small kitchen, and a private bathroom. While usually more expensive than the previous options, studios provide more independence.

Student rooms for rent in Lisbon

Renting a room is a popular option among international students for many reasons, mainly because it allows you to meet people as soon as you arrive in Lisbon and the rent is cheaper than renting a whole apartment by yourself.

The most common type of room in the Portuguese capital is the single room, meaning the entire room is yours and it is your personal space. There are also shared rooms for two students, with two beds, two closets, and two desks. This option is usually cheaper, but it means you won’t have much privacy when you want to be alone.
