Housing Options in Seville
The EUSA International Office will assist and guide incoming students in finding accommodation, current market pricing, housing location, safety concerns, cultural adaptation issues and other related matters. Unless otherwise specified, housing is not included in the programme fee for any of our agreements with Independent Students, Sending Universities and Study Abroad Providers. Hence, apartment and dorm arrangements will be independent agreements made between each individual student and the different providers.
There are several types of accommodation that EUSA visiting students can choose from for their study abroad experience in Seville. There are no best or worst types, as each of them has its pros and cons: students should decide what type of accommodation best suits their Study Abroad goals. Traditional formats of housing accommodation in Seville include:
The International Office strongly recommends that students make housing arrangements prior to their arrival in Seville or, at least, prior to the commencement of classes and the academic calendar. Please understand that the support offered by the International Office does not imply assurance of providing the student with any particular type of accommodation, as it is the student’s final responsibility to arrange for their own housing.
Important Notice! When a student signs a lease or rental agreement they are signing a legal document. EUSA staff will help students with the process of formalising the lease; however, EUSA will not assume any responsibility for discrepancies between the parties involved, provider and tenant, at any stage before, during or after the study abroad period.

There are different student dormitories available in Seville. Dorm fees normally include a shared or independent room, cleaning service, wireless internet access, gym, and more. Most dorms offer additional meal and laundry services.
The International Office holds contacts with local dorms; we provide guidance to the students who may favour this option as their accommodation of choice. Staying in a student dorm has the advantages of being able to live surrounded by other students with whom to practise conversation regularly and having access to many useful facilities such as private study rooms, a gym or a pool within the same building.
Each student’s specific requirements/preferences for staying in a dorm can be addressed through email. Dorms undergo a careful selection process and frequent assessments to guarantee favourable experiences for students who opt for this accommodation alternative.
Price (approx.): Students should be able to find this type of accommodation for a monthly fee of 700€ – 1000€.
Students who choose to live with a Spanish host family will typically be provided with a room (shared or independent depending on agreement with provider), meals and cleaning and laundry services. To best inform the host family about each student’s specific needs and/or food intolerances or allergies there is a form available to fill in.
It is important for students to know that living with families from Seville does not necessarily imply that they will have less freedom than students living in other housing options. Students requesting homestays enjoy total freedom as they can enter and leave the apartment whenever they please. It is true, however, that there might be some common-sense rules to be discussed with the families to ensure a successful day-to-day life together. This housing option has the advantage of enhanced communication opportunities in Spanish, although this depends on the interpersonal relations established between family members and students.
Living with a host family is a great way to become immersed in Spanish language and culture. Host families are carefully selected and regularly evaluated to ensure that students who choose this housing option have positive experiences.
While EUSA does not provide this type of accommodation, the pre-arrival information email regarding housing lists a number of providers that cater to this mode.
