Students stay at the Galileo Galilei student residence, located at the Valencia Polytechnic University. Your choices are a single room with private bath or a double room with a private bath that is shared by you and your roommate. Internet, linens (sheets and towels), and weekly cleaning services are included. For 2014-2015, the housing cost per student per semester is $4,080 for a single and $2,690 for a double. The housing fee does not include a meal plan. You will have the option to purchase a meal plan at the student residence.

All students are required to live in the student residence. Living together as a cohort of students provides a safe and comfortable environment while abroad. However, if you have a parent/guardian that lives in Valencia, are age 24 or older, or have a disability that requires accommodations that the student residence is not able to provide, you may request to have the housing requirement waived. Please contact the Study Abroad office for more information.
