Prepare for your Housing Search

Research, research, and introspection should define your pre-accommodation search. Familiarize yourself with the different areas of Luxembourg and find where you want to live. Read blogs from the area, find official resources, talk to people in expat forums, and visit the different areas. Ask yourself questions like:
How big a place do you want? A studio? A three room flat? A house?
Where do you want to live? Somewhere close to your work?
What's your price range?
With answers to these important questions you can begin to think of a specific place.

Flatsharing

A flatshare can be an excellent way to save money on your accommodations. It also offers an opportunity to get to know a new city with a local. The average price for a flatshare is 500-600 euros.

An important trait in any roommate situation is having boundaries and a clear understanding of what each roommate requires. To protect yourself against potential problems, try to arrange it so that your roommates co-sign the lease. This makes all the roommates responsible for whatever happens to the property. If the worst was to happen, such as your roommate losing their job, they will be held financially responsible- not you.

Hostel

Like too many things in Luxembourg, hostels tend to be more expensive than average. With so little competition, they are free to charge what they like. Average beds in the dorms cost about 26 euro. During events, try to book far in advance as there are somewhat limited options.
