Accommodation in Bangkok
Accommodation during your studies in Bangkok
Most of our students live in shared flats with one to three other people. Many of the flats are in high rises with a rooftop terrace, swimming pool, gym, cleaning staff and security. There are also options for those who prefer to live alone or with local students. The rent for a shared flat is approximately 150–300 EUR a month.
We list more options near the universities in the Asia Exchange Guide sent to you two months before the beginning of the semester. You can find roommates in advance in the Facebook group created for your semester.
