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 homestays with local families. We recommend that you 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 like food and laundry. Plus, they are one of the best places to make friends and get to know Segovia! We recommend that our students reserve rooms in student residences as soon as possible, as there is limited availability and they can fill up quickly.

We can recommend the following residences to you, but please get in touch with them directly for up-to-date information on prices, availability and how to reserve a room.

BEYOND CAMPUS

“Curated apartments nearby your Campus”

More than 85% students are overseas students who have travelled thousands of miles from their homes to study, leaving behind their familiar comfort zone and landing in an unknown country where their biggest task is to find suitable accommodation.

Beyond Campus is the new platform for IE students to find their accommodation, assisted from start to finish. It was created by a team of IE MBA alumni who successfully identified a real need for good, reliable and safe accommodation for the growing IE community.

Not only do we have the best-curated apartments nearby your campus but we strive to improve the experience offering contracts in English, 24/7 service, quality control of apartments, amongst other benefits!

HOST FAMILIES

INNFAMILY

If you prefer living in a family environment where you can practice your Spanish and enjoy delicious home cooked meals, then a home stay 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 house-keeping 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

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 a flat:

RECOMMENDED REAL ESTATE AGENCIES

Renting a flat through a real estate agency tends to be a bit more expensive due to commissions compared to 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:

A FINAL NOTE ON 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 who you can share a flat with, 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

If you plan to live in a flat, in order to avoid scams, we always recommend visiting it in person not making any payment before signing a contract.

ABOUT THE CONTRACT

Rental contracts usually last one year, although you can sometimes negotiate with the landlord to rent for a shorter period, although 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. 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 which has been signed by both parties.

UTILITIES

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