At IE University we offer a range of options to suit individual preferences and budgets. The IEU Student Office
offers all students advice in the process of choosing among the different offers available at each campus.
With an on-campus Residence Hall and many off-campus accommodation options, students can select the option that better suits them according to their preference.
REYES CATOLICOS RESIDENCE HALL
The Reyes Católicos
Residence hall is an on campus, all – inclusive solution. For a single fixed price you get a nice room and a full meal plan, security and cleaning services. Plus you don’t need to pay for other expenses such as gas, electricity, water, etc. They are also the best way to meet other IE University students!
The Reyes Católicos Residence Hall is the on-campus housing facility, in the heart of the city's green belt. The Hall is a newly renovated building with 43 modern rooms – 20 single and 23 double – with en suite bathrooms, telephone and Wi-Fi broadband Internet access. The rooms come fully furnished, with bed and bathroom linen and are cleaned daily.
The Residence Hall’s location gives students easy access to all the University's facilities – café, dining hall, photocopying and printing center, library, and computer and study rooms.

The meal service operates from Monday to Saturday. No meals are served on Sundays or holidays. Three meals are served daily in our dining hall: breakfast, lunch and dinner, at hours that are compatible with academic class schedules. Students who wish to eat outside of those set meal times must pay directly at the cafeteria.
Students are free to come and go 24/7. IE University trusts its students to behave responsibly and respect the rights of residence. There should be no excessive noise, especially between 23:00 and 9:00 hours. Visitors are permitted from 10:00 to 22:00 hours. A record will be kept for security reasons of all students who leave and enter the residence during the night. Students who intend to spend a night or the weekend away from the Residence Hall must inform the Residence Hall managers in advance. Parties are strictly forbidden in the rooms, corridors, staircases and common rooms.
TELEPHONE AND INTERNET
Telephones are available in all rooms and can be used for both internal and external calls which are billed monthly. A broadband Wi-Fi internet connection is also available. You will need a computer with a Wi-Fi card or a device which is compatible with the IEEE 802.11 Wireless LAN standard. Access is included in the monthly accommodation fee.
Student rooms and communal areas are cleaned daily, with the exception of Sundays and bank holidays. Students must make their bed and tidy their room so the cleaning staff can do their job properly.
Silence must be observed from 23:00 hours onwards. Students are expected to behave responsibly and respect other students. Parties are strictly forbidden in the rooms, corridors, staircases and communal areas.
Student Life and the IEU Clubs organize events and activities throughout the whole academic year. These include regular conferences with guest speakers, cultural and artistic activities, sports, and leisure activities such as hikes, wine-tasting events, trips and tours, among many others. Students are encouraged to form their own clubs based in their particular hobbies and interests, with the aim of helping our residents integrate to university life and become part of the IE Community.
FURNITURE AND ELECTRICAL APPLIANCES
Students can bring their own study lamp, computer, drawing board, special chair or any other items they need for their studies. Hotplates, kettles, heaters, microwaves, and other devices that have an electrical element or produce flames or smoke are strictly forbidden for safety reasons.

RENTING AN APARTMENT
There are also options for students who prefer to live in rented apartments and be more independent. There are certain things you may want to know about renting a flat in Segovia:
In Segovia, a good quality flat with one or two rooms can range between 500€ and 700€ a month.
The contracts are usually for one year, although you can negotiate with your landlord to rent for less time. In this case, they might raise the rent price a bit more.
The landlords will usually ask for a security deposit that can be the equivalent of 1 or 2 months of rent. You can negotiate the terms with them.
Expenses such as electricity, water, gas, etc., are not normally included in the rent.
If you prefer to rent a flat in Segovia, the IE University Student Office can provide you with further information about landlords, websites and agencies available to start your search.
RENTING A ROOM
Another good housing solution is simply finding a spot in an already rented apartment or sharing a flat with other students. Expect to pay anywhere between €150 - €350 per month plus the share of expenses (electricity, gas, etc.) with your flatmates.
The IE University Student Office manages flatmate lists and offers from current IE University students and other landlords. Their team can provide you with further information about these options.
If you prefer living in a family environment, practice your Spanish and eat delicious home cooked meals, the IE University Student Office manages a list of Spanish families who have a spare room and wish to host an IE University Student. Most of them already have experience hosting international students. The price of this type of housing ranges around 32 to 35€ daily, or between 900 and 1100€ monthly. This usually includes full board, cleaning and laundry services.
