Accommodation can be one of the biggest headaches of organizing your year abroad; here I will give a try to give you some tips!

Be an early bird

Start looking for somewhere to live as soon as you have confirmation of where you’ll be studying.
The more time passes the less rooms will be available; and of course, the best deals are booked months before.
Get informed of where is your hosting University and firstly look for accommodations around that area.
 Finding a beautiful place to live abroad is not easy at all, and as far as concerne my personal experience I would had not be able to do it since I contacted a real estate agency for Erasmus students.

Amazing options to be the first to rent the best rooms are these ones:
Uniplaces is a very good option If you want to search the house using your University name.
It is user friendly and risk free.
Search the best option near your University;
Rent the house even months before being in the new city and manage payments safely.;

Spotahome is the most used rental portal from students in Europe:
simple, risk-free and at your fingertips.
Discover your new home through amazing videos of the house;
Rent the house even months before being in the new city and manage payments safely.

Zappyrent The most recommended site from Erasmus students where to search a room.
Zappyrent is a rental portal designed by students for students … IT IS ABSOLUTELY FREE! (ZERO COMMISSIONS)
simple, risk-free and at your fingertips.
Discover your new home through a 3D tour and manage payments safely.

Be adventurous and start your adventure with no prejudices

I would totally recommend to share an accommodation with students from different countries.
A multicultural atmosphere where to live would be the best option ever, since you can go over your limits and boundaries as far as concerne multiple aspects starting from eating habits.
This is the real spirit of the Erasmus.
The exploration starts inside your home.

Seek out for students who have just returned from their time abroad and get their recommendations it is extremely easy if you have an account on Dot-e platform to search a city and find all the students over there.
Dotters are always happy to help and if you are lucky they have a friend with a vacated room.
Another good thing to do is to contact the mentors of your hosting University, they will be ready and happy about helping you!
Keep in mind that you are not alone and that there is always a huge flow of students going abroad. Join other students who are going in the same city and move early!!
Moving early is also the first advice of the article and the first one given by all the students.

Do not panic!

You don’t manage to find anything that you like? Contact the most reliable real estate agencies of the zone and ask them to help you searching in the zone.

Still can’t find somewhere to live? It’s not the end of the world – staying in a cheap hostel or on a friend’s sofa for a few weeks can give you some time to find a beautiful place, and to explore the city to understand better how to move around.

Enjoy the article and good luck for your new adventure!
