The price of rent in private accommodation varies depending on the town, location, room size and the accommodation quality.
Students who have not secured or are not entitled to student dormitory accommodation can rent a private room or apartment. The process of renting private accommodation should begin at least one month prior to coming to Croatia. International students should seek private accommodation options independently.
Cost of private accommodation
The price of rent in private accommodation varies depending on the town, location, room size and the accommodation quality. Approximate rent prices for Croatia are:
- 150 EUR per month for a one-bed, shared kitchen and bathroom
- 250 EUR per month for a studio apartment.
