Student Accommodation FAQ

  • Do I meet the host family before I move in?
    You will meet your family the day that you arrive in Barcelona and move into your housing. All of our host families have been checked and approved by an Expanish staff member, and most of them have been working with us for a long time, meaning they have hosted lots of students.
  • Is it just one student per homestay?
    We have many homestays that we work with, and some families host only one student while other families host many students at once. If you have a preference one way or the other, feel free to note this when you register for a program and we will do our best to accommodate your special request within our network of host families.
  • Do all homestays have WiFi?
    Depending on the destination there might be Internet available in the accommodation, but we cannot guarantee this in advance. If you require Internet, please write it down in the field “accommodation notes” and we will do our best to try to arrange it.
  • Where are the homestays located?
    All of our homestays are located in the best neighborhoods of the city and always within 15-25 minutes on foot or by public transport of the Expanish Partner School. Some example location neighborhoods are Eixample, Sagrada Familia, Gracia, and Ciutat Vella.
  • Can I live walking distance to the school?
    Shared Apartment options in Barcelona are within 25 minutes walking distance to the school. For homestays, the maximum distance from the school is 25 minutes by public transport.
  • When is the accommodation reserved?
    The accommodation is always reserved with arrival on the Sunday before your course start date and departure on the Saturday after your course end date.
  • Are bills included?
    The accommodation price includes all bills like water, gas, electricity. No extra fees will be charged.
  • Can I use the kitchen? The washing machine?
    The Shared Apartment option includes use of the kitchen and washing machines to do laundry. The Homestay option does not include use of a kitchen or washing machine, as the host will take care of meals and laundry.
