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

Students who choose to live with families generally share a double room with a fellow API student and are 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 Salamanca 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.

Note: Housing between the fall and spring semesters is not included.
