Renting an apartment or flat is possible in any Ukraine’s city. Foreign students who do not want living in a dormitory or hostel can rent an apartment. International students are offered a wide range of apartments to choose from. To find a suitable accommodation, look through newspaper ads, surf the internet or apply to a real estate agency. The University officials can also help find a suitable apartment. Foreign students can rent a separate flat or share it together with other students. Before you start looking for an apartment, it is recommended to assess your budget.
Rental costs depend on the type of accommodation you choose, its condition, location and available facilities. A flat located in the center of the city or close to the university will be more expensive to rent. It is necessary to remember that rental costs differ from city to city. For example,
- a single-room flat or studio apartment in Kiev will cost about $400-$500
- a single-room in Kharkiv will cost around $300-$400
- a single-room in Lviv costs 300 dollars and more.
If you want to live in a 2 or 3-room apartment, be ready to shell out a round sum. The University International office will help you come up with the right decision and chose the best accommodation for your money.
