HOST INSTITUTION
The Universidad de Granada, founded in 1531, continues a long teaching tradition, the roots of which can be traced back to the madrasahs of the last Nasrid Kingdom.

In Granada, there are four University Campuses, as well as the “Campus Centro”, in which all the centres spread throughout the historic part of the city are brought together. The UGR's policy of using buildings of historical and cultural value has enriched its heritage, as well as promoting the restoration and maintenance of these buildings. In addition to this emphasis on more traditional elements, the Health Science Technological Park, which is still being developed, demonstrates our strong commitment to innovation by promoting interaction with technological bio-health companies and favouring high-quality healthcare and biomedical knowledge.

Over 60,000 undergraduate and postgraduate students study at the UGR, with another 20,000 students taking additional courses, language courses, summer courses, etc.

HOUSING
  •     off-campus apartments/rooms for rent
  •     host family
  •     hostel
The cost for living with a host family is roughly around $5000 for a semester. For students who want to look for off-campus apartments, prices can vary anywhere from $5000/semester to $7500/semester.

MEALS

If you choose to live with a host family, meals are often provided; otherwise, you may choose to cook in your apartment or eat in the campus cafeterias.
