All students live with host families, one or two students per family. In addition to being a necessity in a university community with 50,000 students and very little university-owned housing, boarding with families provides an invaluable element to the student's linguistic and cultural immersion in Granada. All host families live within walking distance of the university.

All Central College Abroad host families have been carefully selected and most have a long history of receiving students in their homes. Interaction with a family allows students the valuable opportunity to experience traditional Spanish life, while still having full access to the Central College Abroad Center.


All host families provide breakfast, lunch and dinner daily. Most Spanish families take pride in their cooking and in their traditional Mediterranean cuisine.
