This is how much students will pay for a room to rent this season.  What does it look like in big cities?

The beginning of the academic year is ahead of us. Many students will move to big cities and look for rooms to rent. We checked the prices of accommodation there.

When checking the prices of rooms for rent, we took into account popular and large cities such as Warsaw, Kraków, Wrocław and Poznań. It is not without reason that we are looking at these places – data from the Central Statistical Office, which presented a list of the largest academic centers in Poland in terms of the number of students in the 2022/23 academic year, show that the mentioned locations are at the forefront. Since there is a lot of talk about rents going up, we checked how much an ordinary room costs per month. We made a review based on offers from the portal

We only looked at the offers of single rooms in multi-person apartments and those accommodations that can be seen in the photos. Prices vary depending on the standard and location, but this is not always the main determinant of whether we will pay more or less.
