Housing


Housing in Segovia is designed to help you experience the local culture of Spain, and to improve the speed of language acquisition while living with a host family. Daily interactions with the host family afford students cultural nuances that could otherwise be overlooked.

Homestays in Segovia are carefully selected to fit your needs and requests.

Homestays are located within walking distance of the AHA center and classrooms or near local bus lines.

Students are rarely placed in a home with another student, but, if that is the case, each will always have their own private room with a shared bathroom.

Linens and towels are provided by your host.

Immerse yourself in the daily life and routine of the household, and experience Spanish cuisine and food culture as host families prepare all of your meals! Culturally, mealtimes in Spain are a very important time for family and are very pleasant occasions. Enjoy!
