Housing is conveniently reserved for you in a hotel-style dorm. Your roommate will be assigned based on information you provide before arrival. Alumni recommend being as specific and honest as you can about your personal preferences and lifestyle to assist the matching process.


The Vila Universitària is a hotel-style student residence located right on campus between the classrooms and the Valles Forest with lovely views. The dorm includes lots of services and facilities like a student support center, laundry, cafeterias, a market, swimming pool, football field, and volleyball courts. Included in the cost is weekly apartment cleaning, change of sheets and towels (just like a hotel), and some meal tickets for lunch. You can also buy additional meal tickets, prepare your own meals, or eat out at nearby restaurants.
