Halls of Residence

Please, note:

  • Residences usually offer modern, excellent facilities: monthly fees are hence usually higher than a shared flat
  • Reservations and payment directly with the relevant residence 

University of the Basque Country partner residences

Inscription for the upcoming academic year starts in April. By August, the list of admitted students is posted on the residence´s website. Whole year students have the priority to occupy vacancies; this means that if you travel to the UPV/EHU for only one semester, you may not be admitted.
Once admitted, pay close attention to the deposit refunding policy: a personal decision (lacking an academic factor) to leave the residence  may not lead to a refund (deposits can go from 310 to 800 euros depending on the city and the length of stay).
