Listed by UNESCO, Alcalá de Henares puts an atmospheric spin on student life. All the festivals just make it better. Cervantes Week (the guy who wrote Don Quixote and once lived here) is the most famous. Think food on a grand scale, music, theatre and markets. But any week of the year, there’s nightlife to keep you busy. Chillout the morning after in a local park or take a long lunch getting down with the local tapas culture. Want some big city energy? Madrid’s just 35km away.
Lope De Vega
Alcalá De Henares
In the historic heart of UNESCO city Alcalá de Henares less than 100m from the university’s central library, the Residencia Universitaria Lope de Vega has been fully converted from a historic military barracks into one of the most impressive student accommodations buildings in the world.
It has many room types including a whole floor of stylish living “under the eaves”. It also includes a huge (really huge) patio space where our students can relax, study or carry out any number of outdoor activities.
Like to do things differently? You’ll love Lope de Vega, part of the sustainable rehabilitation of Alcalá de Henares, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Even better, this historic space delivers the best kind of 21st-century student experience!
Rooms are single, double or attic. Some have private kitchens, and they all include cleaning and a full-board meal service. There’s super-fast wifi, a games room and a gym, plus air con. Or when the heat is on, chill out on the enormous patio and get to know your 400+ neighbours!
