Living Accommodations for Bilbao/Getxo, 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.

Most housing placements are located in the beach town of Getxo within walking distance to the beach and each other. Commuting between Getxo and downtown Bilbao, where the Business School is located, is efficient, safe, easy, and fairly quick; the metro makes several stops in Getxo and takes 20 minutes to get to downtown Bilbao.


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 and Basque customs.


Apartments—shared apartments with other USAC students or locals. These offer a bit more independence and you will be responsible for your own meals.
