International students


There are a variety of possibilities for accommodation in Barcelona, depending on your interests and economic possibilities. Pompeu Fabra University also works with the Barcelona University Centre (BCU), an organisation that offers services related to the extra-curricular life of international students who come to study in Barcelona. Resa Housing offers a complete accommodation service for international students through BCU.

Look for a room

The preferred option for students in Barcelona is usually to stay in a shared apartment through classified advertisements. This is a direct transaction between you and the landlord of the apartment or the people who already live there, and does not require you to pay a commission.

Look for a flat

You can look for a flat by checking classified advertisements or through an estate agency. Estate agencies act as intermediaries between the landlord and tenant and charge a commission for this.

Look for a residence

UPF-IDEC has an agreement with two student residences. If you are staying in Barcelona for longer than 9 months you may request a place in either and benefit from advantageous conditions.
