Non-NYU Housing: Apartments
A small number of students choose to live in apartments during their time in Madrid. If you choose to live in an apartment you are entering into a legal contract when you sign the lease with the landlord. NYU is not involved in this agreement and is not able to break the lease on your behalf. Apartments are available on a limited basis as Madrid is not a city where there are many available rental units.
The apartments that past students have rented are those that will be presented. The NYU Madrid housing coordinator is available to help recommend which of these units might meet your preferences.
- Apartments generally accommodate two to five people per unit.
- Furnished apartments include towels, bedding, kitchen utensils, etc.
- Payments are made directly by the student to the landlord in Euros.
- Students are responsible for abiding by the terms of the lease.
- Located throughout the city.
- Students can search for apartments on their own.
- Overnight guets are typically allowed.
- Not the same cultural experience as a homestay.
- Students interested in living in an apartment may submit this choice when they complete the online housing prererence system. Requesting an apartment used by a past student is not a guarantee for assignment . The NYU Madrid housing coordinator will match students to apartments that have been recommended but given the limited availability some students will be assigned to a homestay.
- Rent per month will range from USD $630 (triple) to $1000 (double), plus utilities (electricty and water are more expensive than what you might be familiar so be prepared). Many landlords will also charge approximately $200 as a cleaning move upon move out.
