Useful Information 

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 University
Universidad Internacional Menendez Pelayo- Sevilla campus is housed within a fully-restored 1920s vintage building, less than a 10 minute walk from the Plaza de España. The ISA Office is located on the ground floor, so you will always have a friendly face greeting you. There is WiFi offered throughout, along with plenty of study areas and resources.

ISA students have the option of a homestay with a local family or independent housing. Homestays and apartments are conveniently located near their university on foot or via public transportation, and also include meals in the price. Walking is a way of life in Sevilla, and a wonderful way to explore the city, and most students will be living in the Nervión, Triana or Remedios zones of the city.

If you prefer, you can organise accommodation independently. More information on the accommodation options can be found here:
