The Colegio de Estudios Hispánicos considers accommodation to be one of the most important aspects of its courses for allowing the student to feel totally comfortable. For this reason we offer a large range of choices for our customers.

The number of days, weeks or months needed for a reservation depends on the type of accommodation wanted. There may be an additional cost if reservations are not made before the correct date. The Colegio de Estudios Hispánicos will reserve all accommodation from the day before the course commences (Sunday at 3pm) until the day after the course has been completed (Saturday at 12pm).

You should also state, when making your reservation, any preferences or additional information such as: living with smokers, pets, need for special diet (vegetarian, without gluten, for allergies, religious reasons, etc.).

 

Spanish Families

Living with a Spanish family ensures that the student practices Spanish everyday helping to improve vocabulary and pronunciation as well as learning the different elements of family life in a foreign country.
It is considered one of the best accommodation options because it gives the student the opportunity to get to know Spanish culture, cuisine, customs and way of life.
Every family has been carefully chosen so that we can guarantee cordial treatment, a friendly family atmosphere and good quality food & hygiene in the house.
Our families have great experience in hosting foreign students and they enjoy their company throughout the year.
You will live close to the school, so you will not need to use any means of transport to go to and from your classes each day.
If, in the first 2 days, a student does not feel comfortable with a family for any reason, the Colegio will arrange accommodation with another family free of charge.
