The accommodation is available between 12pm on the Sunday prior to the first day of class (Monday), until 12pm on the Saturday following the last day of class (Friday).
Depending on availability, students will be able to book extra days in the accommodation (max. 3, extra fees will be charged). The cost of an entire week will be charged for students requiring 4 or more additional days of accommodation. The possibility of extending your stay is dependent on availability and may not be available, especially during high season.
In the residence students can benefit from half or full board, in flats students have to cook for themselves. The minimum number of students in a residence is 8 and the maximum 150 (depending on the city and the type of residence). In shared flats, the average number of students is 4-5 (minimum 3, maximum 12).
There are no cooking facilities in the student residence because meals are included in the price (except for residences without meals, in which case there will be a kitchen). Also, keep in mind that you will not be able to use the kitchen if you're staying with a host family. Those students who want to cook by themselves should choose accommodation in a shared apartment.
Half board includes two meals per day: breakfast and dinner.
Full board includes three meals per day: breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Half board means that breakfast and dinner will be included, this cannot be changed. Students who wish to include lunch in their meal plan must choose the full board option.
Can a host family or meal plan at the student residence accommodate special dietary restrictions for vegetarians or for people with food allergies?
If the student requires a special diet we are happy to prepare special meals. While making the reservation, students must clearly specify their personal diet needs.
Host families are carefully selected to ensure that you are treated as part of the family and that your stay be as pleasant as possible. Host families range from young families to retired people and are all Spanish speakers.
Some families welcome only one student, others have the opportunity to welcome 2 or 3 students. Unless specified, students will never be placed in the room with another student who has the same nationality.
Students are not allowed to use the telephone without any prior approval, but they can receive personal phone calls at reasonable hours.
Families offer the laundry service once a week. Student will not be able to wash their clothes themselves without prior permission. Ironing service is not available. The family will clean student's room once a week.
