Private campus or rent?

In Bucharest there are several private dorms and two private student campuses. The most important student housing operator in Bucharest is Arcca Student Housing which offers more than 2.600 accommodation places in single, double, and triple rooms. The prices range from 123 to 320 Euros/person per month, the sum is to be paid monthly and it includes all the expenses.

“When teenagers get ready to go to college and leave home, this is what they dream of:  a typical student life. New colleagues, jokes, socialisation, mutual support, permanent exchange of ideas. Most probably, nobody dreams of an apartment in a block of flats where they have to live alone. Thus, we ensure both the social context young people look for and the safety parents want for their children”, says Anamaria Dunca, General Manager of Arcca.
