Porto provides a low cost of living, when compared to other cities part of the European Community.
  • You can find affordable prices for private rents/properties to living. These include sharing apartments with other students; a room in "family homes"; or temporary accommodation such as hostels.

In order to avoid paying high fees for withdrawals from your international accounts, we recommend for students to open a bank account in Portugal because international credit cards are not always accepted in some places.

Just go to the bank you want to present your passport or international identity card, an address in Portugal and a Portuguese tax number (NIF), which can be obtained by going to the closest FINANÇAS (government offices) where you will deal with everything related to taxes (including getting your NIF).
