Live and learn in the city of Madrid.

SLU-Madrid recommends that all first-year students live together for a full academic year in one residence hall located within walking distance of campus. This recommendation contributes to building SLU-Madrid's unique and diverse community. We also have host families available for first-year students who prefer living in a homestay than in a dorm. SLU-Madrid does not have a housing requirement for first-year students. For more information about housing options for first-year students, visit the "First-Year Housing" link in the menu on this page.

Transfer students, sophomores, juniors and seniors do not have a housing requirement, nor do most study abroad students, unless required by their home institution. Study abroad students must confirm their housing options with their home institution study abroad advisors prior to applying to SLU-Madrid's host family system or arranging for other accommodations. For more information about housing options for sophomores, juniors and senior, visit the "Housing for Study Abroad and Upperclassmen" link in the menu on this page.

Housing Accommodations for Transgender, Gender Nonconforming and Gender Diverse Students 

SLU-Madrid Housing Coordinators are committed to honoring the dignity of all people and will attempt to find every student a housing option that aligns with their self-identity. 

If you identify as transgender, gender nonconforming or gender diverse and would like to discuss your housing options, please contact one of the following staff members: 

It's important for you to inquire about your housing options as early in the process as possible, while the widest range of options is available. This is a confidential process. If you indicate your gender identity to our housing coordinators, you will be contacted directly to discuss housing options.
