Accommodation in Cantabria

Santander is a tourist city in the summer and offers a wide variety of flats for rent in the private sector, while the availability of places at Halls of Residence, either public or private, is rather more limited. It should also be borne in mind that there is a much greater selection of accommodation on offer in the first semester than in the second one.

It is possible to choose among the following options:


Private apartments shared with other students


The most popular and affordable type of accommodation is sharing a rented flat with otherstudents, either Spanish or foreign. The monthly  cost per person is around €200-300, without including utilities.


Halls of Residence


These facilities belong to institutions outside the University of Cantabria and students must personally carry out all the procedures.



Staying with a family


Students may live with a Spanish family, usually with full board (single room and three meals). The price may be approximately 30-32 € perday. If students follow a Spanish Language Course, the Language Center helps looking for host families.
