Housing
Type of housing: Apartment/House
Arranged by: Independently - My choice
If returning, I would choose: Apartment/House
Why?
I prefer living with people of my own choice and in an apartment/house that I have chosen after having seen it. I also want to live in the center of town rather than on campus.

Since I arranged accomodation on my own, with the help of friends who were already living in Barcelona, I am generally very happy with where I lived. However, living standards are not comparable to those in Sweden and Barcelona is not a very cheap city to live in, if you want to stay in the center. The reason I chose to look for my own accomodation was mainly because the UAB campus is located outside of Bcn and I preferred to live in the center.

Housing
Type of housing: Flatsharing community
Arranged by: Independently - My choice
If returning, I would choose: Flatsharing community
Why?
If you live in a flatsharing community, you live with other people, often even from different countries. Therefore, you learn more about other countries and as well about yourself as you have to arrange your style of life with the one of the others.

The housing of the Universidad Autónoma de Barcelona is pretty good although it is on campus, and as I am as an exchange student only staying for one year, I prefer to live close to the center.

Housing
Type of housing: Apartment/House
Arranged by: Independently - I had no other choice
If returning, I would choose: Apartment/House
Why?
For me house is just a place to sleep, the most important thing is the people you are living with, and they were great.

I think uni provides some amount of rooms for students, but I wouldn't count on this. You'll probably have to look for a place by yourself. It might take you a while, so be prepared to live in a hostel/hotel for a week or so. The reasonable price for a nice exterior room without additional payments is 300-400 €/month

The campus is well out of town, half an hour at least, and so living in the student village on campus just didnt appeal. I think most rooms were shared as well, which is not ideal. You can get them to find you a host family, but i went independently, as did practically everyone else i met, and its definitely better i reckon

the housing that uab offers is sharing rooms (not flat), if you don't have problems with this it can be ok. It stays outside of the center but close to university.. it's what you think is most important being close to the city or to the university..

I had to look for a place by myself, so I cannot give any opinion on housing at this university; anyway I suggest to everybody who wants to go to the UAB not to choose housing in the campus because is far from the city (barcelona) and you would not enjoy living in one of the most beautiful cities in the world
