Students can live in a university residence hall or with a host family. If you live in the university residence, you will have an apartment with three to five rooms and four to six roommates.

If you would like to live with a host family, you will be living with either a mature Spanish couple or a house mother. Host families with children are limited. It is a possibility that you might be living with another exchange student in the house if you choose to live with a host family.
