While we intentionally emphasize opportunities to engage with the culture through your course options, there’s also a world of learning beyond the classroom. We’ll open the doors; but it’s up to you to grasp the opportunity and enjoy a life-changing experience.

Learning outside the classroom takes many shapes and forms, including on-site study or excursions to fascinating places of interest that enhance your cultural immersion and give a meaningful context to your academic courses. The exact excursions you will participate on depend on your program choice, term of study and, in cases where extra non-program specific excursions are offered, your own personal preference.

HOUSING INFORMATION 

For a semester in Barcelona your housing will be one of the following options: International Student Residence, Self-Catered Apartments, or a Homestay. Each housing option has distinct benefits, as outlined below. Please be sure to review the general housing for Spain. Additional information can be found here.  

The International Student Residence is a fantastic option for students who are looking to have a more integrated, communal living experience in Barcelona. Local Spanish and other European students make up the majority of residents making it an ideal choice for students interested in connecting with peers. Students will be housed in single rooms, with shared common areas (bathrooms, kitchen facilities, lounge space). There are approximately 25 students total in the residence in a given term.

Barcelona is renowned for being a great university town, drawing an international, diverse and educated group of students each year. So in a self-catered apartment, you may share with international students, other Americans or Spanish students.
Approximately 3-8 students will share each apartment and its common areas (bathrooms, kitchen facilities, terraces when available). Most apartments are mixed-gender given that students only share common areas, though housing staff will only assign two students of the same gender to each bedroom.

Homestay is a wonderful way to immerse yourself in local daily life by living in the home of a local family, but it does carry a supplemental fee. We will place one student per homestay and do everything we can to see that the home meets your personal preferences, needs and expectations as outlined by you in the housing and Personal Health forms you complete on Passport. Homestay families are all experienced in hosting American and international university students in Barcelona. Like most Spaniards, these families are dedicated, generous and passionate about sharing their home and culture with our students.
