Living in Barcelona

The housing situation in Europe is quite different than back in America. Which is a good thing, as it makes it possible for students to seize the opportunity to take a step outside their comfort zone, and into the local lifestyle.

Housing Options

Each study abroad experience is different from the next, housing included. Before committing to the option that is most comfortable or similar to living back in the US, we request our students to ask themselves: In what ways do I want to integrate with the local community?

At ALBA, we provide our students with various housing options so they can make a choice that best fits their personal study abroad goals.
