Shared Student Apartments
In a shared student flat you will be living with other international students. You'll have a private bedroom (unless you had requested a double room) and will have to share a bathroom and kitchen.
Student apartments are the cheapest and most popular form of accommodation for international students. Shared apartments are located throughout El Palo and Pedregalejo area and are all within 10-30 minutes walking distance from the university.
Typically, flats include a living room with a TV and dining space, although this sometimes forms part of the kitchen. Please keep in mind that shared student flats constitute an economical solution and, while never below a basic standard, don't offer the level of comfort and quality some people are accustomed to.
Please also note that, being a budget alternative, shared student apartments are furnished simply and provide modest living space. Students are responsible for cleaning, cooking, and laundry, and there is limited to no landlord supervision. International students are typically grouped together in the same apartments.
The cost for a room in a shared apartment ranges between 170-330€ per month, plus utility costs (between 20-30€ per month). See price table below for approximate costs depending on the length of your stay.

Spanish Host Families
If you are looking to practise your Spanish as much as possible a Spanish host family is the best option. A standard Spanish family doesn’t normally speak any other language apart from Spanish, so you will therefore get to practice your Spanish at all times in the house. Living with a host family is also a great opportunity to learn more about Spanish customs and culture.
Spanish host families are often older couples who no longer have their children living at home and therefore have extra space. It is also quiet normal for a family to be hosting other students as well (about 1-3 students at a time).
The cost for room and half-board (breakfast and either lunch or dinner) with a Spanish host family ranges between 550-850€ per moth. A separate fee is charged for in-house laundry service.
