We offer three different types of accommodation in Barcelona. You can obviously also take a Spanish course with us without accommodation, if you prefer, and make your own arrangements.
Spanish host family
Our Spanish host families all live in flats — like virtually everyone in Barcelona. It is difficult to describe a typical family as there is such a variety; some are young couples, some have children still living at home, others – perhaps the majority – have grown-up children who no longer live at home, but who often appear for lunch on Sundays!
Lunch is usually eaten quite late – around 2.30 p.m., and dinner is usually at about 9.00 p.m.
Most families live near the school and are rarely more than 20 minutes away by public transport. Very occasionally, a family may be up to 30 minutes from the school as some of the most elegant districts of Barcelona are on the edge of the city.
More about our Spanish host family accommodation, including prices, on our main Barcelona website.
The normal minimum period for renting one of our apartments is 4 weeks, although shorter stays can sometimes be arranged on request.
All apartments are centrally located, approximately 10-20 minutes from the school on foot or by public transport.
Apart from your room, each apartment has a kitchen, bathroom and living room which you share.

We also offer bed-and-breakfast or half-board accommodation in a choice of three different student residences.
One is just a 10-minute walk away from the school, the other two will involve a bus or Metro ride.

Please note | In each case the accommodation is normally reserved from the Sunday before the beginning of a course until the Saturday morning after the course ends.
If it is impossible to arrange transport to suit these arrival and departure times, please contact our enrolment secretaries to check that alternative arrangements can be made.
Extra nights can usually be arranged on request at an extra charge.
