Barcelona is the capital of Catalonia, an autonomous community of Spain with the official status of a nationality. Catalan modernista architectural works like the Gaudí Cathedral and the Sagrada Familia Church are Antoni Gaudí’s masterpieces. The Picasso museum and National Art Museum of Catalonia are only two of Barcelona’s many art collections. Residents enjoy the performing arts, cuisine and café culture late into the night.

Please note that we do not offer on-campus accommodation, but we collaborate with two housing agencies. Please check out the recommended housing website (mentioned in the application form). The sooner you access these, the better. Rooms can be booked prior to arrival, and it´s the easiest way to find accommodation near Campus for a reasonable price.
This type of accommodation is more expensive. Non-university residence halls offer a variety of options as to the type of accommodations, prices and the variety of renters. Students may choose to rent an apartment, which is usually shared. The average price of a room in a shared apartment is usually between 350 to 400 Euros a month.
All incoming students are strongly recommended to have at least a B1 level of Spanish Language. Without that level of proficiency, it will be very difficult for students to follow courses, discuss, write and read classroom materials.
