Living Accommodations for Madrid, Spain

Both living options are within commuting distance of the host university and Madrid has excellent public transportation.


Living with a host family is a great opportunity for you to immerse yourself into the daily life of a Spanish family. It is highly recommended as one of the best ways to practice your language skills and learn Spanish customs. Your host family will provide two meals per day (usually breakfast and dinner) laundry access once a week.


Shared apartments are with other USAC students. This is a suitable option if you have an independent lifestyle but are used to group living. Apartment buildings typically have five to six floors, with Spaniards from all walks of life. There are no dormitory-style buildings; USAC students are not grouped together in one building, rather they are placed throughout the city.
