CIS has a Housing department which provides housing for our students from outside of Madrid, be it foreign or Spanish students. The department also helps to receive and guide the students during the beginning of their stay in Madrid.

This department will be responsible for the wellbeing of the students during the whole program and in supporting them if they have a problem or setback.

The different types of housing to choose from are:

In a Host Family: Is the best way to become immersed in Spanish culture and improve language skills.

CIS has been working with more than 30 families for about 20 years. All of them meet our high standards required to host students which include standards for commitment, care, hygiene and mutual respect and understanding.

The families provide 3 meals a day, maintain the house, and prepare packed lunches when the students have excursions outside of Madrid.

The student will eat with the family three meals a day (breakfast, lunch and dinner) in order to help integrate the student in the culture. The student may also share difficulties which they may be facing living in a foreign city so that the family can offer them advice.

In a Residence Hall: Is a good option for students who do not need to improve or learn Spanish and prefer to share experiences with other students who are in a similar situation.  Many students choose this option in order to be part of a university environment.

Madrid has many residence halls for students. The housing department of CIS will help the students find the one that best fits their needs, keeping in mind the residence atmosphere, hours, location and rates.

In an Apartment: This option is advised to students who do not need immersion with a family and prefer to stay in their own flat or in shared student flats. The housing department of CIS offers the student various renting options depending on their needs.
