Cost of Living

What is to be expected when living in Belgium? A typical monthly average cost for a single person living in Brussels is estimated at €1,800. However, this is living within the city center, taking transportation, having extra activities to do throughout the student’s stay and living quite comfortably.

Estimated in August 2022, students could find a room that was around 85 square meter apartment with the rent being €144.Without utilities included or internet.

Students in Belgium tend to spilt apartments with current school mates and spilt everything down the middle to have the cost quite less than it would be if the person was paying everything on their own. This is a temporary solution that can work towards the benefit of both individuals.

The universities do have accommodations available however, paying on campus accommodation can be more.
