Housing & Meals

Experience Spanish life by living with a Spanish family! These families are carefully selected and evaluated to ensure each student is given the opportunity to experience complete immersion within the Spanish language, culture, and traditional social environment of Valladolid. Your meals will be provided by your host family, so you also have a chance to experience Spanish culinary traditions.

Computer Access

Universitas Castellae offers access to a computer lab. Students have ample time to use the computers during the school day. Additionally, all Universitas classrooms and buildings have WiFi. Not all host families will have Internet access available in their homes, so if you plan on taking your laptop computer with you, you should plan on using it at the university or at a local cyber café.
