COWA for University of Richmond in Seville – Academic and Athletics Program

Housing Questionnaire

You will be living with a Spanish host family. The family will provide a light breakfast, lunch, and dinner. This will give you a wonderful opportunity to practice your Spanish. Most families in Seville live in apartments. Although we cannot guarantee you will be living with another student from the program, you can indicate your preferred option on the housing questionnaire. Most families are located within 20-30 minutes walking distance from the school. Be prepared to walk this distance, just like most people in Seville do.

Please complete the housing questionnaire below:
