Living Accommodations for Alicante, Spain

Not all housing options may be available during your program period. Due to local health guidelines, you will likely be placed in single room housing. Please contact the Program Advisor for more information.

Both options are located downtown, close to each other, and within walking distance of the beach, supermarkets, entertainment, and excellent public transportation (buses, trams, and trains).


Apartments— Shared apartments with other USAC, international, or local students. This is a suitable option if you have an independent lifestyle or if you prefer to cook your own meals. USAC students are not grouped together in one building, rather they are placed throughout the downtown area.


Dinner with the host family

Homestay— A great opportunity to immerse yourself into the daily life of a Spanish family. Homestays include three meals per day and provide an unmatched opportunity to speak Spanish and learn Spanish culture and customs. This may not be the best option for you if you have an independent lifestyle or strict eating habits.
