Living Accommodations for Valencia, Spain

Due to local health guidelines, you will likely be placed in single room housing. Please contact the Program Advisor for more information.


Living in an apartment is a great choice for students who prefer an independent lifstyle but are used to group living. The Valencia program offers a variety of affordable apartment options and USAC students will be placed among one of the apartment buildings located throughout the city.

The apartments usually have 3-6 bedrooms and each student will have an individual bedroom. Each apartment has a large kitchen, a living room, and 1-2 bathrooms. They are fully furnished, including bedding and kitchenware. You can walk to the university in under 45 minutes, take a bus/metro (30-40 Euros/month pass, approx. 25-35 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 15-20 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.
