Lunchtime at the Residencia Sant Jordi

Your choice of accommodation

Two types of accommodation are available:

  • Host families (normally in shared rooms)
  • Student residence (shared rooms with private bathroom)

In all cases, the accommodation is with full board. Students with dietary restrictions or any other special needs are requested to make these known in advance.

Host families

All host families agree to fulfill the following conditions:

  • To provide students with rooms which are comfortably furnished
  • To provide basic laundry facilities and to change bed linen and towels weekly
  • To make a daily bath or shower available
  • To provide students with all meals (which may include a packed lunch on some days)
  • To provide students with a door key so that they can let themselves in and out
  • To treat students as family guests and generally behave in a friendly and hospitable manner
  • To ensure that students are at home at times agreed by the school or by the student's parents

Sant Jordi residence

The Sant Jordi student residence is located in the city centre, less than 15 minutes walk from International House. The residence, which provides accommodation throughout the academic year to students from the University of Tarragona, was opened in 1998 and is very well maintained.

Accommodation is available in spacious double or triple room, each with their own private bathroom, with sheets and towels provided. The bedrooms are equipped with wardrobes, writing desks and chairs, desk lamps, bookcases and mirrors. Accommodation includes all meals.

Facilities that are available free to students include a TV lounge, a computer room, separate study rooms, and a gymnasium. Washing machines are also available for a small charge. Students are provided with a key to their room only. There is a 24-hour reception service.

Curfew policy

The school operates a policy which ensures that all students are back at their accommodation:

  • Sunday to Thursday 23:00
  • Fridays and Saturdays 24:00

This policy is strictly enforced by both the monitors at the residence and the host families (and the latter may set earlier curfews).

We look forward to seeing you in Tarragona!
