Living with Local Residents
Housing is an important part of the SCU Barcelona Program. To maximize the cultural immersion component of the study abroad experience, participants are placed in homestays only. Apartments and university dormitories are not available to Santa Clara students.
- Live in a Spanish home with one to two other IES Abroad students in a single or double room.
- Meal plan includes two meals a day (breakfast and dinner), seven days a week.
- Practice your Spanish language
- Immersion into the lives and culture of Spain
All admitted students receive a housing questionnaire that asks for their preferences or special needs. Special requests will be accommodated to the extent possible but cannot be guaranteed. The homestays are a 20-50 minute commute to the IES Abroad Center.
