I lived in the Residencia Sarria for the first month. It is a good way to meet new people and has some conveniences. It is within walking distance to ESADE, has access to metro and buses. The food isnīt too bad. However, it is very expensive compared to the apartments are available in Barcelona. I grew tired of the restrictive nature of the residencia, many rules that I thought shouldnīt be applied to 20 year old students. The apartment was a better option for me. However, I would have rather found one with spanish people.

Housing
Type of housing: Apartment/House
Arranged by: Independently - My choice
If returning, I would choose: A room exchange
Why?
I chose to live with two Americans, thinking that it would be convenient and the easiest option. Looking back, I regret not living with Spanish-speaking roommates because my Spanish did not improve as much as some of my friends did whose chose to live with native Spanish speakers.

The residence hall was ridiculously overpriced - more than twice the price of what I paid at the apartment (including what we spent on food) and for half the size. I saw no reason to live there at first and I know that two people who originally lived there moved out because they were completely unsatisfied with their accomodations.

3.8/5
Housing
Type of housing: A cosy Bed & Breakfast place at Passeig de Gracia.
Arranged by: Independently - I had no other choice
If returning, I would choose: With a family
Why?
The experience of living with other students is delightful. Through time, one learns better about the ways and customs of another. However, to have the opportunity to live with a true Spanish family is something I believe to be very enriching as well. It will be a different experience in a different environment. You receive the concerns of a family as well as the fun of being with friends at the same time.

The Residence is said to be too expensive, too small and uncomfortable. However, the facilities are modern, efficient and convenient.

If returning, I would choose: Apartment/House
Why?
I was happy with my apartment in Barcelona. Rents are reasonable in the city compared to other large European cities and it is easy to find others to share with if you want. Quality of accomodation is generally better than school-sponsored housing.

The housing sponsored by ESADE was generally for undergraduate-age students. It is located in a nice area on a hill overlooking the city. I did eat there on several occasions and the food was very good quality considering it is student accomodation.

Housing
Type of housing: Apartment/House
Arranged by: Independently - My choice
If returning, I would choose: Apartment/House
Why?
In my opinion apartment/house is the best choice in terms of quality, price and location in Barcelona. Apartments for students are especially in the centre of the city, less expensive and often provide with a single room.

My accomodation experience can be considered pretty good: I lived in the centre of Barcelona with roommates of various parts of the world. I have at my disposal a single room at a good price.

In ESADE, Barcelona I have had a great time. I liked it very much to meet so many international people and learn to speak Spanish. ESADE was very well-organised and has provided some very interesting courses, like videoconferences about strategic issues with international students in other cities and other countries.
