1. Welcome to the University of Zaragoza!
We want to welcome you to the University of Zaragoza!
Although founded in 1542, the University of Zaragoza
(with its 35.000 students spread among the different
campuses in the provinces of Zaragoza, Huesca
and Teruel) has not lost the beat of the times.
Meeting point of an increasingly multicultural
population with science and research, this institution
wants to remain open to a constantly widening
and evolving world.
Academic staff at the University of
Zaragoza are highly specialised and have a broad research
and teaching experience. Not only in Spanish as a Foreign
Language, but also in fields as interesting to international
students as Spanish Literature, Geography, Archaeology,
Cinema, History, Biocomputation and Physics of Complex
Research Group), Aragón Institute for Engineering
Homogeneous Catalysis Research Institute (IUCH)
among many others.
Zaragoza is, above all, its friendly
and welcoming people. We encourage you to visit the University
of Zaragoza –and the city– so that you can
explore the Zaragoza experience.

4. Who will help me on my first day at the University

6. Housing and Residential Life
Once at your destination, it is not
very difficult to find a flat to share with other students,
and most of the Spanish students chose this kind of accommodation.
Depending on the kind of flat (with or without heating,
lift, nice location, age of the building…) the average
monthly price for a room is between € 150 and €
300. We can help you with your search by clicking here.
A full flat can cost between € 500 and € 700
a month. Lodging in Huesca or Teruel is a little cheaper.
You can also live in
a Hall of Residence (Colegio Mayor Universitario),
and it is a nice way of meeting people.
Zaragoza: There are two Residence halls
on the main Campus (Campus de San Francisco). Click
the links below, if you want to know about the prices:
Pedro Cerbuna (250 rooms) (see picture)
Santa Isabel (192 rooms)
- Residencia Juvenil Baltasar Gracián (168
double rooms) Contact here.
There are more private residence halls. For more information,
send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
or click here
(only Spanish version, sorry).
If you are ERASMUS Student, you can apply
If you need a map, click here.
By the way, meals can be included in
the price (in Cerbuna, for example, but not in Santa Isabel),
and not all rooms are single rooms. If you are sharing
a flat and you do not like cooking, you can eat at the
cafeterias in the Faculties. Most of them offer full meals
for more or less 4,- euros. All around the Campus you
can find relatively cheap restaurants. A meal for €
7 is not difficult to find.
You can also live with a family or share
a flat with an elder person: this last option is becoming
very popular and students who have already tried it, are
very positive about the experience.
