Host Families

Want to immerse yourself in the Spanish way of life, improve your Spanish language skills, and enjoy a home environment while keeping your independence? Then live with a host family! We handpick our families to ensure quality experiences for our students, many of whom form lasting friendships with their hosts.

We work with several kinds of host families: single women with or without children, young couples, and more traditional families with children. Some live within walking distance of SUMC, some are in the city center, and others live in more residential areas of Madrid that are an easy commute to campus.

This housing option includes a full-board meal plan; a double or single room; laundry and cleaning services; and internet access. Host families tend to be more flexible than student residences when it comes to schedules, dietary preferences, laundry needs, etc. Please note, though: Visitors and overnight guests are not allowed in host family accommodations.
