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.

Housing placements are located in the city of Bilbao and are only a 20-minute metro ride to the beach. Commuting between housing and the Business School is efficient, safe, easy, and fairly quick.


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.
