Where You'll Stay in Alicante

Our carefully chosen housing options enhance your experience abroad by allowing you to live like a local. While we do attempt to match your preferences with our housing options, housing preference requests cannot be guaranteed. Housing and roommate assignments are first-come, first-serve based on availability; apply early to help us organize your housing arrangements.

Apartment

Generally located in the town center, these apartments cater to the independent, do-it-yourself type students who want to experience Spain just as the locals do.

    Independent Living

    0

    While CEA highly recommends that you choose one of our Alicante housing options provided, you also have the option to arrange independent housing. If your ideal housing scenario includes living in a particular neighborhood, having specific amenities or living with a specific person as your roommate, then independent housing could be just the ticket for you.

    Use the online housing application form to request permission for this option no later than the application closure date. If your request is approved, you will receive a rebate for your housing payment, however CEA will not provide you with any assistance setting up independent housing. Keep in mind, rebates are not granted to students who move out of their CEA housing or choose to pursue independent living arrangements after the application closure date.
