1. Malate

Taft Avenue, anyone?

Colleges and universities such as De La Salle University, St. Scholastica’s College Manila, Philippine Women’s University, and Philippine Christian University are in Malate.

Popular condos here include Torre Lorenzo, One Archer’s Place, Green Residences, Vista Taft, and more.

2. Sampaloc

As a vital part of the university belt, we couldn’t help but include Sampaloc. While San Miguel and Santa Mesa are also a part of it, Sampaloc rises as the place with the most listings.

Here, you’ll find the University of Santo Tomas, University of the East, and Far Eastern University (FEU). But schools such as Centro Escolar University and San Beda University should be mentioned as they are closeby (in San Miguel).

We highly recommend condos like 878 Espana, Celadon Park, Vista Recto, and Avida Towers San Lazaro.

3. Quezon City (Loyola Heights + Diliman)

Going further north, we have Quezon City. As it is such a vast area, we decided to narrow it down to Loyola Heights and Diliman.

After all, this is where you’ll see Ateneo De Manila University, Miriam College, and University of the Philippines Diliman.

The condos to watch out for in these places are Blue Residences, Vista 309 Katipunan, Berkeley Residences, and High Park Vertis.

Get a feel of the listings available in Loyola Heights here and Diliman here.

4. Ermita

Another gem along Taft Avenue, Ermita is where University of the Philippines Manila, Adamson University, and Philippine Normal University are at.

Popular condos here include Torre de Manila, 8 Adriatico, Robinsons Place Residences, Eton Baypark Manila, and Suntrust Parkview.

You may discover our Ermita listings here.

5. Ortigas

One would think that there is an abundance of condos in Ortigas because it’s one of the countries many central business districts (CBDs).

Beyond that, you’ll also find many colleges and universities such as University of Asia and the Pacific, Saint Pedro Poveda College, and ADMU School of Medicine and Public Health.

Recommended condos in this place are The Sapphire Bloc, Grand Emerald Tower, The Pearl Place, The Grove by Rockwell, and Kasara Urban Resort among many others.

You can check all of them out here.

6. San Lorenzo, Makati

Speaking of CBDs, we can never forget about Makati. San Lorenzo, in particular.

This is where you’ll see Assumption College, Asian Institute of Management, and STI College. Ateneo Law School and the Asia Pacific College are nearby.

Don’t miss out on condos like Avida Towers San Lorenzo, Laureano di Trevi Towers, Cityland Pasong Tamo Tower, Oriental Garden, and San Lorenzo Place.

7. Alabang

Now, let’s head down south. Where you’ll spot San Beda Alabang, Lyceum of Alabang, STI College Alabang, and FEU Alabang.

Nearby universities and colleges include University of Perpetual Help, Southville International School and Colleges, and Centro Escolar Las Piñas.

Popular condos in the area are East Bay Residences, Cityland Alabang One Premier, Rhapsody Residences, Amaia Steps Alabang, Studio City, and more.

8. Bonus: Paco

Since Paco is the place nearest to the Intramuros universities like Mapua University and Colegio de San Juan de Letran, we thought it’d be good to give a shoutout.

Popular condos in this area are Avida Towers Intima and Manila River City Residences.

Get cracking at those listings in Paco here.

Final thoughts

That’s it! We’ve gone in and around the metro to discover the best rentals for students.

Living the student life outside your family home can give you the ultimate independence. And this actually starts when you get to contribute on deciding where exactly to reside for your studies.

As for our unit owners who desire to cater to students now, we wish you the best of luck! Providing students their very own home away from home is not the easiest task, but we guarantee that it is worth it.

As always, happy renting, everyone!
