Affordable housing expenses are one of the main benefits of renting in Spain. It is important to remember that renting in major cities can be a little bit more expensive compared to small cities. The average monthly rent for a furnished two-bedroom apartment can range from $1200 to $2,000+ based on the size and location of the property in Barcelona and Valencia. However, since UCAM is in southern-east of Spain which is a relatively small area compared to big cities, one-bedroom apartments can be rented for as low as $450 per month. It is important to note that in Spain, you must check that the house you are renting or buying has a habitability permit. There are several houses that were once workplaces yet are now unfit for habitation.

In Spain, lunch is typically served around 2:00 pm and consists of a three-course dinner, a beverage, and typically bread. Additionally, you can benefit from local farmer's markets, which provide a wider range of fresh food at a lower price. Smaller towns will typically have weekly markets however, several cities have daily markets in Spain.
