Hi there, if you are a new upcoming Erasmus Students in Barcelona, or planning to come for an erasmus in Barcelona, you found the right blog.
ErasmusBarcelona.org and WELOVEBCN are pleased to help and guide you into this amazing experience that will change your life. We recommend you to subscribe to our site and our social madie such as faceboook and whatsapp groups.
The most frequent questions of students who had to face an erasmus experience are:
What to do upon arrival?
Where should I go?
How do I find flatmates?
How do I meet new students like you straitgh on?
The first day in Barcelona is the more hard to face. New city, new language and most of the times people don't have a flat already. But if you arrange yourself everything is easier. Our suggestion is to book a room or some hostel before arrival, for one week. In the mean while you can find some flat sharing in Spotahome . On spotahome you can book your room even before arrival, and get facilities upon arrival.
Flat Sharing in Barcelona
In the most of the cases you can visit the flat, you meet the flatmate and then they decide if accept you or not. In the case of Spotahome you visit the flat online by photos and videos, you book the room online and then you get in touch with the landlord (no agency fees), but you cannot visit the flat or meet the flatmates before.
Make a SIM card
The first thing to do once in Barcelona is getting a spanish SIM CARD straight on. Is the basic to get new contacts and contact with the landlords for rooms visities. You can get free sim card with ErasmusBarcelona.org cooming over our office in Carrer Diputaciò 224 (Ent.3), Metro Universitat (Request your simcard).
Meet new friend straight on
