Shared apartment accommodation in Barcelona

For the maximum amount of independence, your best accommodation option in Barcelona is probably an apartment shared with other students

Come and go when you please

We have a number of furnished apartments available for rent which you can share with other students. The normal minimum period for renting an apartment is 4 weeks, although shorter rentals can sometimes be arranged on request.

Each apartment also has a kitchen, bathroom and living room which you share, and each room is furnished with a bed, desk and wardrobe.

Facilities include a washing machine and TV. Some apartments also have telephones but these are programmed to accept incoming calls only.

Each student is provided with a set of keys so that they can come and go when they please.

You are provided with sheets, blankets and towels, but you should bring your own beach towels. The apartments are cleaned once a week and bed linen is also changed weekly.


All apartments are centrally located and are therefore approximately 10-20 minutes from the school on foot or by public transport.


On arriving (the Sunday before the course begins), you should make your own way to your apartment (unless a transfer has been requested). We will send the address of the apartment to you when your booking is confirmed.

You must inform us of travel arrangements and your estimated time of arrival; this will avoid the person handing over the keys having to wait in the apartment unnecessarily, or you having to wait in the street.


Please note that we try to place people of the same age and sex together in the same apartment. However, this isn't always possible.

If you do not want to share an apartment with people of different ages or sex, you should make this very clear on your application form.
