Lodging during the Academic Year

Once you have been admitted at our University as an International student, you have to get your documents ready and look for accomodation.

The Alfonso X el Sabio University has three modern university residences located inside the campus. The residents benefit from a privileged access to the university’s services: library, educational labs to develop the practicals, sports facilities and activities, computer lab, 24 hour security patrol and the close contact with the UAX staff. Our residences remain open from September to June, excluding Christmas and Easter holidays. If you are an annual exchange student  and are interested in requesting a vacancy in our residence send us an e-mail to 

Choosing where to live is an important decision.

In Villanueva de la Cañada there are several accommodation offers in flats or houses sharing with other students. The International Relations Office provides international students with the landlords's contact address, but under no circunstances will it act as a contracting party on the accommodation process.

We do recommend students not to leave this process to the last moment, since last-minute problems may come up.

Finally, to look for a cheap and convenient place to live in Madrid you must take into account several things. The Argüelles-Moncloa-Princesa area is highly recommended for its proximity to the buses that go to the university.
