Living in Segovia

WHERE TO LIVE IN THE HISTORICAL CITY OF SEGOVIA

There are several types of accommodation: student residences, private flats, shared flats and homestay with local families. We recommend you to start looking for housing as soon as possible to make sure that you are able to choose the option that is best for you!

STUDENT RESIDENCES

Student residences take care of time-consuming logistical issues such as utility bills and internet contracts so that you can focus on the important things! Many of them give you the option to sign up for additional services such as food and laundry. Plus, they are one of the best places to make friends and get to know Madrid! We recommend that our students reserve rooms in student residences as soon as possible, due to the fact that there is limited availability and they can fill up quickly.

We can recommend you the following residences, but please for up to date information on prices, availabilities and how to reserve a room, kindly get in touch with them directly. To find the contact information, click on "More info", under each residence.

INNFAMILY: HOST FAMILIES

If you prefer living in a family environment where you can practice your Spanish and enjoy delicious home cooked meals, then a homestay with a host family is the perfect option for you!

IE has an agreement with the company InnFamily, which pairs host families with university students. IE students receive a 30% discount on the booking fee.

InnFamily is a company specialized in providing host family accommodation for students who are planning temporary exchange programs in Spanish universities and colleges.

When matching host families and students, they take the specific needs of each student into account. Staying with a host family is a great way to get to know Spanish culture, language, and traditions first-hand without worrying about the daily housekeeping duties. In addition, many of the host families have university-aged children who live at home, which helps facilitate the student’s integration in the Spanish destination city.

RENTING A FLAT - REAL ESTATE AGENCIES AND WEBSITES

Do you already have experience living on your own? Would you prefer a living situation that provides a bit more independence? If so, you might be interested in renting a flat, either on your own or with flatmates. Here are some of the tools available to IEU students interested in renting an apartment.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT RENTING

Before renting a flat in Segovia, there are several things to keep in mind. The most important factor that influences the amount you spend on rent is whether or not you decide to share an apartment. Living alone is always more expensive. If you don’t know anyone with whom to share a flat, but would like to find accommodation with another IEU student, you should join the private Facebook group “IEU Housing Segovia“. This group has been specifically designed to help you find flatmates and to find more information on renting in Segovia.

PRICES 

Though prices for renting an apartment in Segovia vary depending on several factors, including the student’s personal taste and his/her needs, you can expect to pay anywhere between 500€ and 900€ a month for a one or two-bedroom apartment. If you plan to share your flat with other students, expect to pay between 400€ and 600€ per month.

BEFORE SIGNING A CONTRACT 

In order to avoid scams when searching for a flat, we always recommend visiting it in person before signing a contract or making any payment. 

CONTRACT & THE FINE PRINT 

Rental contracts usually last one year, although you can sometimes negotiate with the landlord to rent for a shorter period (please keep in mind that this might increase the price). The landlords will usually ask for a security deposit that can be the equivalent of 1 to 3 months of rent, but you can negotiate the terms with them personally. In addition, it is important to always request a receipt of payment as well as a contract that has been signed by both parties.

UTILITIES 

Please note that additional expenses such as electricity, water, gas, wi-fi, etc., are usually NOT included in the cost of rent, although sometimes they are. Make sure of this before signing the contract. 

REAL ESTATE AGENCIES

Due to commissions, renting a flat through a real estate agency tends to be a bit more expensive than looking for a flat on your own, but it can be a much more convenient option. IE recommends the following real estate agencies. Be sure to mention that you study at IE. Follow the links below to find out more:

POPULAR HOUSE SEARCH WEBSITES

In general, the most common way to search for a flat in Spain is by using one of the most popular housing search websites.
