Homestays: Recommended Housing each Semester

Homestays, an NYU-approved private Spanish home, are a great option to help you improve your Spanish language skills  while being immersed in the rhythms of Madrileño life.  

Locations of homestays are scattered throughout the city which also helps you to get acquainted with the many neighborhoods (barrios) of Madrid as you navigate the excellent public transportation systems. Homestays are generally located in older buildings, not modern high-rises.
