Best Student Accommodation & Housing Options in Spain

The type of housing that is available to a student may vary depending upon your exact location in the country. Additionally, the costs of that particular housing will vary according to your location.

Host Families

Foreign students wishing to attend college in Spain can choose to stay with a host family. Many host family opportunities are available for students throughout Spain, each providing a highly rewarding experience that will leave you with many memories to cherish for a lifetime.

Dorm Housing

Many of the colleges and universities in Spain offer dormitories and student housing on campus. Student housing varies according to the exact school you will be attending but is something to look into. The benefits of dorm housing include the ability to meet other students attending college, the ability to live much more affordably and the fact that you are always nearby the school.

Studio Apartments

Also known as extended-stay hotels, studio apartment rentals are available throughout Spain and an option that many students opt for, especially upon first entering the country. Though costly, these apartments provide everything that a college student needs –from living space to a bedroom area, a kitchenette, on-site laundry facilities, cable TV, telephone and more –all at one price that can be paid per week or month. Studio apartment rentals are available for periods of 30 days to 12 months.


Many students enjoy living with a roommate. Not only does it reduce the cost of living, but it also provides people to socialize with when you are probably alone in a new country. If you are a people person, roommates could be the best choice for your accommodation in Spain.


If you prefer to rent your own place while you attend college, apartments and flats are available, along with townhomes. However, it is important to know that it can be difficult to get into such housing. It is in your best interest to speak with an agent dealing in rental homes if you wish to obtain your own private housing. Most of the rentals are handled by private owners, but in larger cities such as Madrid, these apartments are often already occupied or filled quickly. The agent can make the process of finding something suitable for your needs easier, especially when you are thousands of miles away.
