We believe in the power of Community!

OndaCity is so much more than just accommodation. We want our guests to experience Portugal in a unique way. Surf weekends, tours, classes of Portuguese, picnics, volunteering activities, cultural events, welcome & farewell events, food tasting and nights in the apartments are just a few of the activities that our guests have enjoyed with us.

Check out our events schedule for the winter semester of 2017.

OndaCity – Start your Journey!


I loved my experience in Lisbon – the city is just amazing and I really enjoyed to live in the center, in an OndaCity apartment! It was easy to reach out to the OndaCity team and they were very supportive in helping us out when having problems. I stayed with Ondacity from September 2015 until May 2016

OndaCity is a company which will honestly take care of you and you don’t have to be worried about living in Lisbon. I loved the clear and fast communication and the family atmosphere.
I recommend OndaCity unconditionally for future erasmus or master students or people living here for an internship.

OndaCity was just fantastic! The team helped me finding a room at the last minute on 2 different occasions. Their staff was really easy to communicate with and so responsive, with lots of cool recommendations about things to do. OndaCity removed the hassle from moving and finding accommodation and I could not recommend them highly enough!

I was first thinking of living in a university residence, but OndaCity had a lot of well located rooms so I decided to choose my own. The room was comfortable, and I enjoyed a lot my life in Lisbon with my roommates. I will definitely come back, Lisbon is great!

“I rented a room in OndaCity for a whole year and I found the apartment to be cater to my needs quite well.
I am satisfied with the logistics and service offered.
I personally enjoyed Lisbon. The city is very young and lively, which contributes to its vibrant yet relaxed style. The vibe is something special, and I would urge anyone to visit it once!”
