Live with other Barcelona GSE students

New students often choose to live together or to live with Barcelona GSE alumni who stay in the city after graduation. Many alumni announce available rooms in their apartments in the Barcelona GSE Facebook group. In addition to connecting you with potential roommates, the group serves as a great resource for discovering more about student life and learning about on- and off-campus events.
