Madrid is a city with an intense past. Its small streets are full of history, and in them you can breathe the aroma of many centuries of life. But even though it is an old city, Madrid is one of the most avant-garde capitals in Europe, with fabulous transport and hotel services. However, everyone agrees that the best thing about Madrid is its people. Cheerful, friendly, open, the people of Madrid will always be ready to help you with anything you need and will welcome you with open arms.

Types of accommodation

You can choose between three different options:

Student Residence

Student Residence

It can be a good option if you are going to stay in Madrid for several months and want to meet students of all nationalities. You will be able to choose between various types of accommodation, from single rooms with their own bathroom to rooms shared with other students.

In the residence, the student's rest and study are a priority for everyone, although meetings, parties, games and excursions are held every week.

The residences are very close to the school, just a few minutes from Luis Vives and the main universities in Madrid.

Shared flats with other students

Shared flats with other students

If you want more independence and live in the district of Madrid that you like the most, you can stay in a shared flat.

In this type of accommodation you will share an apartment with other students of different origins. The common areas will be the living room, bathrooms and kitchen. You can choose to share a room or have your own room.

Sharing a flat can be an unforgettable experience!

Living with a Spanish family

Living with a Spanish family

This is the best option if you want to immerse yourself completely in the Spanish culture. You'll share a house with a family. It is very important for you to know that this does not mean that you are going to spend too much time with the family. Normally families allow foreign guests to have an independent life, and do not usually bother them.

If you have questions, need clarification or prefer that we help you find your accommodation, write us an e-mail or complete the contact form and we will answer all your questions.
