Barcelona offers multiple options for student accommodation, depending on your needs :
Since 1997, UPF, together with the rest of the universities in the Province of Barcelona, the Barcelona City Council and the Catalan Government (Generalitat de Catalunya), has been collaborating with the Barcelona Centre Universitari (BCU) , an organism offering services relating to extracurricular university life for the community of foreign students studying in Barcelona. Through the BCU, Resa Housing offers complete housing services for international students and researchers.This housing service allows you to search its database and make reservations online for free, can assist you in different languages (Catalan, Spanish, English, French and Italian) and rounds off its services with free legal advice on rental contracts. It also provides short-term rental contract service. In addition, its honoraria are much lower than average (maximum 200 euros).
This is a good option because in addition to housing, they also offer a series of services allowing students to focus on academics and university life.

Housing Anywhere.com is a free student-to-student housing platform that lets you rent accommodation from students who are in an exchange programme abroad. Besides, it allows you to offer your room to foreign students in your home city. In order to log in, incoming students must enter their UPF e-mail address.
Pompeu Fabra University is involved in two alternative housing programmes:
- Programa Viure i Conviure [Living Together]. This initiative promotes coexistence with elderly people living alone. Students involved in this programme benefit from free accommodation and other services.
- Projecte de Lloguer Solidari [Charity Rental programme]. This is a charity project that promotes affordable rent rooms to university students up to 35 years old. It is aimed at families (including single parents) and to elderly people who have a spare room and, due to financial difficulties, need to rent it.
