Sevilla is a city of life and color. It is located in the South of Spain on the plain of the Guadalquivir River. From its narrow winding streets full of shade to its bustling cosmopolitan center, Sevilla has something for everyone. This city is the largest in Andalusia and is growing rapidly, as evidenced by the recently finished subway system.
The Universidad de Sevilla is located in the historic center. This 16th century building used to be an old tobacco factory up until the fifties. It houses different university faculties: the School of Literature and Philology, the School of Geography and History and the Law School. The contrast of shadow and sun in its courtyards and green surroundings make it an ideal and inspiring place to study with friends.
ISA students will live in homestays or apartments throughout the city, and located is chosen based on the safety and feel of the neighborhood. Homestays and apartments are conveniently located near their university on foot or via public transportation. Walking is a way of life in Sevilla, and a wonderful way to explore the city. Most students will be living in the Nervión, Triana or Remedios zones of the city.
If you prefer, you can organise accommodation independently.
