• Accommodation


Finding a place

Finding a place called Home is really important, even more when you’re in another country. The International Relations & Student Life Office is aware of this and will help you in this process. Even though IQS does not have its own accommodation, we have different possibilities for you. If you decide to sign a contract with one of the companies listed below, do not forget to tell them that you are an international student from IQS.

Your first days

We recommend that you stay in a hotel, a youth hostel or a student residence for the first week. It will be easier for you to visit different accommodation options once you are in Barcelona. You will have plenty of time to make the best decision and find your definitive accommodation.

 

We recommend bringing cash to cover the cost of your first days.
