Caution and Reservation Fees
The rooms should be in perfect condition at the beginning of the period of residence, and students are responsible for their maintenance. A caution fee will be required to ensure that the rooms are kept in good condition. This deposit will not be paid if students have sent their reservation fee before entering the hall of residence.
The caution fee is equivalent to the monthly fee of the hall of residence in question. It will also serve as a guarantee against the following:
- Damages to the precincts of the hall of residence caused by students.
- Departure before the end of the period of residence, except for those circumstances provided for in any of the regulations concerning accommodation which justify the premature departure.
The above-mentioned situations will automatically result in the non-reimbursement of the deposit to students. The Director of the Accommodation Service is the final authority to resolve complaints for the non-refund of deposits. Where applicable, deposits will be returned at the end of the period of residence at the student’s request.
Hall fees should be paid between 1 and 10 of each four-month period.
Conditions of Residence
Acceptance of a room implies that the student knows and agrees to abide by all the terms of the Conditions of Residence. The student should sign such Conditions of Residence upon entering the hall of residence.
Halls of Residence Rules
- Code of behaviour (content only available in Spanish)
- Accommodation guidelines for exchange students (content only available in Spanish)
For those students who desire to seek alternative arrangements, several announcements for studios and shared flats are posted on the notice boards around the campuses.

The European Community promotes interuniversity co-operation as a means of improving the quality of education for the benefit of students and higher education institutions and considers student mobility is an important element of this interuniversity co-operation. The recognition of studies and diplomas is a prerequisite for the creation of an Open European area of education and training where students and teachers can travel freely within the European Community. For this purpose the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS) was developed as a pilot scheme established within the Erasmus programme in order to improve academic recognition of studies completed abroad.
Main characteristics of ECTS
This system ensures transparency and is designed to strengthen the ties among the various institutions and to widen the course offerings made available to students. Additionally, it makes it easier for institutions to recognise the learning achievements of students through the use of commonly understood measurements- credits and grades- and it also provides the means to interpret national systems of higher education.
The ECTS system is based on three core elements:
- Information (on study programmes and student achievement)
- Mutual agreement (between the partner institutions and the student)
- The use of ECTS credits (to indicate student workload)
These three core elements are made operational through the use of three key documents:
1) the information package
2) the application form/learning agreement
3) the transcript of records
Full academic recognition is a conditio sine qua non for student mobility in the framework of the Erasmus and Socrates programmes. Full academic recognition means that the study period abroad (including examinations or other forms of assessment ) replaces a comparable period of study at the home university (including examinations or other forms of assessment), though the content of the agreed study programme may differ.
ECTS provides transparency through the following means: ECTS credits, which are numerical values allocated to course units to describe the workload required to complete them. They reflect the amount of work each course unit requires in relation to the total amount of work necessary to complete a full year of study at the institution. This includes lectures, seminars, tutorials, fieldwork, private study and examinations or other assessment activities. ECTS is thus based on a full student workload and not limited to contact hours only.
In ECTS, 60 credits represent the workload for an entire year, 30 credits generally for a semester and 20 credits for a term.
The ECTS information package supplies written information to students and staff on institutions, departments/faculties, the organisation and structure of studies and course units.
The ECTS transfer of records presents students’ learning achievements in a comprehensive way and is commonly understood and easily transferable from one institution to another. Good communication and flexibility are also needed to facilitate the academic recognition of studies completed or taken abroad. In this respect the ECTS co-ordinators have an important role to play, as they are responsible for the academic and administrative aspects of ECTS.
