Housing
Type of housing: Apartment/House
Arranged by: Independently - My choice
If returning, I would choose: Apartment/House
Why?
On campus, doesn't exist. I haven't heard anything about living with a family or a room exchange either. So, there seems to be no other choice.

As far as I remember there is an accommodation service but I had been told that this is very expensive and that would be very easy to find a place to stay. The "problem" of using the service is that you will be placed with other exchange students. This isn't a really good way to improve your Spanish which was at least my main objective. Better is trying to find something with another Spanish person. I have to admit that this is quite dificult because Spanish students tend to live at home with their parents. But you'll never know unless you try.

Housing
Type of housing: Apartment/House
Arranged by: Host university
If returning, I would choose: Apartment/House
Why?
Sharing appartment teachs you much more about the culture, society, etc. If you share with local students they help you to know the best places, at the same time you avoid the biggest problem for Erasmus students: not to mix-up with local students.

I got a list with apartments and rooms available from the university but they don't offer you any further help. The rooms of the university are way to expensive.

Why?
Apartments can be quite cheap if you find the right place. Our apartment was overlooking the beach which is why we paid more than other people €270 per month where others found apartments for €180 per month, but we paid for the location.

The university has a special office which helps foreign students to find accomodation. The best option is to get there early in September when you can take your pick from all the apartments available, we went at the end of september when it was more difficult to find apartments.

The university is quite big, but the faculty is very small. I estimate, about 300 students. The onliest problem is, that there are not sufficient computers. One course is about 50 students, and you have good contact to the professor.
