Cost of living

The city of Granada is considered one of the cheapest places in Spain and Europe to live as a student. Obviously, the cost of living for each student depends on their lifestyle, but it tends to vary between €550 - €750 per month.

For guidance purposes, we have calculated the average cost of living in Granada in the most basic aspects:

Accommodation in a shared flat in the city centre (water and energy expenses included) varies roughly between €200 - €250 per month.

The daily set menu in the University refectories costs €3.50. The takeaway menu costs €4.

A single city-bus ticket costs €1.20. If you obtain a bus card, the price is €0.79 per trip and with the University bus pass the cost is €0.57 per trip. A monthly pass costs about €40.
