Before your arrival

When you have to reserve your place

Even though we are the UAB’s residence, the procedure to reserve a place at the Vila Universitària is independent of the enrolment process at the university.

The regular reservation process starts on July 1st until the 25th.


When you reserve your place, you have to pay 170 € as the “first deposit”.

The day you sign your contract you have to pay another deposit equivalent to the price you pay for rent.

Any doubts? Take me to further information about the deposits.

Do you need a visa?

If you are an international student and you need an accommodation certificate to apply for your visa, you will have to pay both of these deposits when you make your reservation.

As in the moment of reserving, you will not have any place assign yet, this second deposit will be an amount equal to your first choice at your reservation.

When do you need your flat?
