Living Accommodations for Valencia, Spain
Apartment choices in Valencia are good, pretty, and affordable! USAC students will be placed in an apartment building in the heart of downtown, right next to the Town Hall square, and only 3 miles from the university. This apartment houses students from all over the world, and living here will give you the chance to socialize and interact with Erasmus (a European Union student exchange programme), and other international and Spanish students. The price for a double room is approximately a third of what the university residence halls cost.
The apartments usually have 4-5 bedrooms and there are large double bedrooms as well as individual ones. Each apartment has a large kitchen and two bathrooms. They are fully furnished , including bedding and kitchenware. Once a week building staff clean the common living areas. It has security and a 24/7 emergency telephone number. You can walk to the university in under an hour, take a bus (30-40 Euros/month pass, approx. 20-25 minutes), or take a bike (city bicycles can be rented around town for 30 Euros a year, the first 30 minutes of each rental is free and it only takes 10-15 minutes to bike to the university).
A homestay is 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 customs. This option is not advisable if you have an independent lifestyle or strict eating habits.
