Accommodation is one of key aspects of your stay. In this section you will find different options available.


There are several dorms near the campus. Reservations must be made directly contacting each one:


Living with a local family will enable students to improve their Spanish skills while they enjoy and get a better knowledge of the Spanish Culture. It will facilitate their adaptation and integration to the city and the University.

The cost of the homestay is 700€/month plus 50€ for administration fees.
