Affordable Apartments in Depok

Depok is home to many renowned universities in Indonesia, including Universitas Indonesia, Universitas Pancasila, D Campus of Universitas Gunadarma, and many others. It’s no wonder why the satellite city has turned into a home for college students.While many people prefer to live in kosts (boarding house), some students want to choose to live independently in an apartment. That is a good idea as well, considering the more budget-friendly monthly rental price of Margonda apartments.

Therefore, we’ve come up with the list of the most affordable apartments in Depok, both in Margonda and Cinere.
