Housing | API Study Abroad


API students in Seville can choose from two different housing options – students may choose to live with a host family, or in a residencia. Internet is included in both options.

Students who choose to live with families share a double room with a fellow API student and be provided with three meals per day and laundry service. Families provide an amazing opportunity to experience Spanish culture firsthand. Host families serve as a unique introduction into Spanish culture, and may be made up of a married couple with children, a divorced or widowed woman with children still at home, or a family with some members living at home and others living outside the home. Students can opt for a single room for an additional fee.

Students in Seville may also choose to live in a residencia. Residencias are usually small, family-run student residences that house international students and occasionally Spanish students. Traditionally 1-2 students share a bedroom, and a bathroom is shared by multiple students. All students have access to living, TV, and common areas. Residencias are generally co-ed and accommodate 2-30 students. Students are provided with three meals per day. Meals are not provided during school breaks and holidays. Single rooms may be available for an additional fee.

Students attending Universidad Pablo de Olavide will typically experience a commute of 20-30 minutes via metro from their housing. These students are provided with a monthly metro pass along with a set amount of credits to help them with this commute.
