@Flap - Substantially lower, given the moon is about 1/4 the size and mass of Earth. There are plenty of other problems with Europa, which is why I'd suggest a colony on a space station rather than directly on the moon itself. Still difficult, but easier to solve than all the **** you'd have to deal with living on the surface :)

As much as I dislike Wikipedia, there's a good page about this subject there if you're interested in the challenges we'd face:

And for comparison of Earth vs Europa, NASA's own site has a handy tool for that:
