Finding student houses in Estonia before you fly should be your priority after getting your visa. Getting a house will save you money and time. Also, you will be stress-free. There are two types of housing in Estonia:

  • Student Dormitories: Most student accommodation in Estonia are newly renovated and offer cheap options to students. House rent for students ranging from Euro 70-320. The house rent depends on the season, location, and quality. If you share your room with another person, it would cost you around Euro 70-150, including utility fees. You will find apartments for rent in Estonia, which you can easily share with multiple people.

  • Private Housing: If you plan to live in a big flat, then private housing would be best for you. Flat pricing starts from Euro 200 -400 depending on the location, season, and quality. Before you start logging on to one flat, be sure about the terms and conditions, contract, and other legal issues. You can also note that the asking price may be high for you (as you are a foreigner). Among the two kinds of houses in Estonia, student dormitories will add value to you considering the budget constraints of the students.
