Student Accommodation Sevilla
Are you coming to Sevilla to study and are looking for an affordable place to live? Then the most affordable option is normally a room in a shared student flat. Another popular option for foreign students is staying with a Spanish host family. Although it is more expensive than a shared flat it includes food and you will have a great option to practice your Spanish skills. If you prefer staying on your own you can also rent a small studio or one bedroom flat (Further below you can find further information about the different options and a price guide).
How to find and book my student accommodation
There are basically two options when looking for student accommodation in Spain either try too book your accommodation in advanced or to look for accommodation once you arrive to Sevilla.
What nearly all Spanish students do when they look for student accommodation in a new city is using notice boards available at all schools and universities, notice boards in bars or local shops or special student accommodation newspapers and then they visit a number of rooms before they decide upon one.
On the internet you can find several websites specialised in offering student accommodation or sites like ours that have a section with classified ads where you can find rooms and flats available or include an ad yourself requesting student accommodation (see below for more info).
You should though be very careful about booking and paying for student accommodation before you have seen the actual room, flat or neighbourhood. Very frequently you will find some nice photos or get a promising description about the accommodation and when you arrive it is completely different. This is the main reason why Spanish students normally do not book before they have seen the actual accommodation.
Unless you book through a trusted agent that can offer some type of guarantees or where you can contact former students we recommend that you use the internet to get information and if possible to arrange to see the accommodation upon arrival but unless you are almost indifferent about the type of accommodation you end up with you should be careful about paying in advanced.
