UVA in Valencia, U.Va.

UVA in Valencia

A Division of the International Studies Office




All UVA in Valencia participants will live with host families. This provides students a greater opportunity to improve their Spanish langauge skills, gain insight into Spanish culture and daily life, and form what are for many lifelong friendships with their hosts.

  • Families are selected by the on-site program directors. Students can live with a roommate or housemate from the program or be the only student in the household.
  • Host families provide three meals a day and will do laundry. All homes have internet access.
  • Households are situated throughout Valencia. Housing is assigned in order of acceptance so early applications are encouraged.
  • Participants can request specific roommates, houstemates, or host families on their program application. We do our best to accommodate all requests.
