Housing & Facilities in Salamanca

Want to learn first-hand what life is like in Spain? Live with a local host family in Salamanca and experience authentic Spanish culture.

At the Academy in Salamanca, students will live with local families and take their classes at the Colegio Maestro Ávila, a private primary and secondary school located near the center of town.

Host Families

All host families have been carefully vetted and have previously hosted American students with our partner, IES Abroad. Two students will be assigned to each host family where they will have either a shared or single bedroom, and shared bathroom facilities. Students will share three meals a day with their host(s). Each homestay is located within a 10-20 minute walk of Colegio Maestro Ávila. When it's time for class, students will walk in small groups to the school. RAs will supervise the commute to and from school. Family assignments are based on student preferences such academic interests, sports played, hobbies, and dietary needs.
