If I had to choose to rent a room in Barcelona for students or a residence, I would no doubt choose…
The residence! It is clear, I have already mentioned all its advantages in previous posts, but we have not given all the emphasis we would like to one of the factors that matter most to us. Although you may not believe it, food is closely related to all aspects of your life. And we are not only talking about your health, but we are also talking about your studies, your physique and your standard of living. When you choose to rent a room in Barcelona for students you yourself regulate your diet, and that is not very good sometimes, since due to tiredness we tend to end up resorting to fast food, cheap restaurants, and packaged foods. In a university residence, on the other hand, we make sure that you have first class food, and at the right time.
We constantly hear: “you are what you eat”. Well, stop hating this saying because it is completely true. When we make a bad decision, like deciding to sink our teeth into ‘fast food’ rather than a dish prepared with care from an ecological kitchen, our brain is changed and becomes less able to control its impulsive behaviour. It may seem utopian but regulating your diet during your years of studies can be crucial. In addition, there are foods that help to boost your concentration. We showed them to you in one of our previous posts.
A good diet lets you handle problems better, find an easier way for everything. A University of Pittsburgh study concludes that obesity affects cognitive function, so that an individual who suffers from it will require a greater effort in terms of complex decision-making. So you know, if you want your studies and your body to be in harmony choose our cuisine in The Lofttown and enjoy an unforgettable experience. Have a good week!

If you are going to study away from home and need to find a halls of residence Barcelona to stay at during your time studying, it is certain that the usual doubt will have come to mind: shared flat, rent a room in Barcelona, or halls of residence? Don´t worry, we are going to help you choose!
Well, it is certain that, at the beginning, the option to share a flat, or rent a room, seems more economical than living at a student residence. We ask you to reflect on a series of issues that will help you to see how cheap or expensive it relatively is, depending on the services, the advantages, and the security that the different options give you. The university residences duplicate, and, even, triple the advantages, the services and the security, which is why after weighing everything up, it still turns out to be more advantageous than the option of living alone.
Why live in a student residence against renting a room, or sharing a flat in Barcelona:
Living together: Living with other people is more fun than living alone. However, the most important thing about living in a student residence is that the people you live with are like you, university students with whom you have a lot of things in common. It will be a very enriching experience for you and your future.
Ease: this is one of the key points of the residences in order to reach your university objectives. You have everything covered: food, the cleaning… You don´t have to worry about anything. It is as if you were at home with your parents. This allows you to focus on your studies and on enjoying your free time.
Security: in a university residence you have security 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. You will not have to worry about your belongings and you will have immediate assistance from the professionals at the residence whenever you need it. You will never be on your own.
If you decide to live in a university residence, we invite you to get to know us. The Lofttown is a new concept in student residences that you will love. That is what all of our guests say. Discover us! Reserve now and don’t miss out on your place.

One of the characteristics of university life is the passion for everything we do, even though that can be said more for some than others, and more so if we are talking about those that require concentration. This has been an issue at times for all of us, and that is why we propose certain food products so that you will have that concentration when you most need it. But, beforehand, a word of advice! When you need to study, try not to eat rich food given that doing so makes us suffer from a sensation of unpleasant sleepiness due to the quantity of accumulated blood in our stomachs. One of the advantages of living in a university residence is that you can ask for advice at all times regarding what is good to digest whilst you study, whilst you do sports, or during any other activity. That said, lets start!
Walnuts, cashew nuts, almonds and seeds contain nutrients that regulate serotonin and they modify our emotions allowing us to concentrate better.
Fruits and vegetables
Strawberries, blackberries and blueberries slow down oxidisation in our brains, which enhances its performance by increasing neural signals.
Green tea helps the memory not get tired.
Omega 3 from fish helps our neurological functions and makes it possible to have more efficient attention than normally.
It helps with concentration and creativity.
One of the advantages of living in a university residence, and more precisely at The Lofttown, is that you will be able to enjoy an ecological buffet at all meal times so that you can always choose what your appetite most fancies, and in a natural way. This way, you will be able to follow your “concentration diet” during the periods of time when you most need it. Have a happy week!
