API students in Madrid may choose from three different housing options: a host family, in a residencia, or in an apartment.
Students who choose to live with families are typically placed in double rooms with a fellow API student and are provided with two 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 Madrid may also choose to live in a residencia. Residencias are smaller than American dorms and house between 15-90 students. The rooms are double-occupancy, and there are common bathrooms with showers. Three meals per day, laundry service, and cleaning are provided.
Students may also choose to live in apartments located throughout Madrid. Students generally share their apartment complex with other Spanish families, as opposed to other students. Apartments may be co-ed, and the number of students sharing the apartment varies based on the apartment size. Students may have single or double rooms depending on the number of bedrooms. Meals are not included in this option.
Single rooms are available in all three housing options for an additional fee.
