What is it like to live in La Coruña? Would you recommend it? What is the city like?

Without a doubt! The city has thousands of places to visit, as much nearby as in the city itself.

What is the student lifestyle like in La Coruña?

The city doesn't actually have a big student vibe, you couldn't describe it as a great university city, but on certain days (like Thursday evenings) it's bursting with students.

How much does it cost to live in La Coruña?

You can find a flat in La Coruña from €150 a month (per person) then you have to take the city bus to the university, it's a bit far (about 10 minutes by bus). If you get a a Millenium card a journey will cost approximately 80 cents.

Was it difficult to find accommodation in La Coruña? Can you give any advice?

There are a lot of flats that are set aside for students, you won't have any problems. The residences are really far out of the city centre, so I wouldn't recommend them.

What is the food like there? What are some of your favourite dishes?

The food in Galicia in general is 10/10 amazing.

Where would you recommend to visit in La Coruña?

The tower of Hércules, the monte de San Pedro, the parque de Bens, the Portiño, all of the Old Town in general. If you ever get bored of the city, there are loads of beaches nearby.

And to eat in La Coruña? What are some of your favourite places to go?

There are lots.

Where would you recommend for a night out in La Coruña?

My favourite place, without a doubt, is the puerto de ocio area, it's a shopping centre with pubs on the first floor that have balconies that look out onto the sea. They've just opened a big club there, too.

Do you have any advice for future students in La Coruña?

Take an umbrella and go and have a great time!
