In Salamanca, the students mainly live in "shared flat" and some in University Residences. Few live in apartments or studios, mainly for economic reasons, but as I discuss later, is an option that should not be dismissed, since there are apartments at reasonable prices for those who value privacy and independence above all other things.
And finally, there are students who live in families. This case usually occurs mainly in Spanish students.
Each housing option has its advantages and the choice depends on various factors.
As we have been to talk about the practical aspects, starting with the cheapest option, which is to live in an apartment.
An apartment is usually shared a house with 3 or 4 bedrooms where students share common areas: living room, kitchen and bathrooms. Also share the cost of supplies: water. Electricity, telephone and Internet in many cases the heat.
Each student has his own room where you can study and have their privacy, but must respect the "rules" of the house in cleanliness, noise and hours, etc.
In Salamanca there are many shared flats for students. Prices vary depending on location, equipment and furniture, m2, number of bedrooms, number of bathrooms. The average price for rooms in shared apartments is around 200 euros per month, which must be added the cost of electricity, internet, etc, ranging between 20-70 euros per month, depending on the number of people who share the floor and the services they have.
For those who are looking for a shared flat I suggest La Casa de Las Flores. It's a nice house with 9 bedrooms, all with private bathrooms, a large living room of 40 m2 and a large fully equipped kitchen. The main advantages of this home are:
- You will have your room with your own bathroom
- Common areas are spacious and well equipped

The price of the room, ranging between 200 and 240 euros (for a terrace room) includes all bills!
Enjoy a multicultural environment to share a flat with people from different countries and cultures, graduate students or Erasmus who have in Spanish the common vehicle of relationship.
The house is next to the River Tormes, Santa Marta de Tormes, just 3 km from the center of Salamanca, with direct bus to the university campus and a nice bike path along the river, which is used by some people currently living there.
