Help with Student Accommodation

If you’re moving to Barcelona to start a course, then the most important thing you’ll need to arrange is somewhere to live while studying.

This can be stressful. Negotiating in Spanish isn’t easy and the competitive Barcelona rental market means it can be difficult to find a room, especially in the summer.

But don’t worry! Languages4Life can arrange accommodation within easy reach of the school for you before you start a course. Utilities are included too!

This service is optional and flexible, but can take a lot of the stress out of your move to Barcelona.

Our most popular option is a home-stay with a local family, which is great for practicing your Spanish skills! But we can also help you find accommodation in a shared apartment for longer-term stays.
