At Lorca Institute we consider that your accommodation is a very important part of your stay in Compostela. We will do our best to make sure that your accommodation is of the highest level and complies with Spanish and Galician legislations.



We offer a varied range of options depending on your likes and budget. All accommodations have been carefylly selected and inspected by our staff. Many of them are near the school. When it is not the case (more than a 20 minute walk), we will do our best to locate students near direct transport lines such as buses that stop near the school. Santiago de Compostela is not a big city and you will be able to reach everywhere on foot.

We want our students to be happy and we hope they like the accommodation that we choose for them. Our registration staff is available during the day to meet the demands that students might have. The students (and their hosting families) will be given an emergency phone number so that they can reach the school at any time. In case of cancellation of an accommodation, an administration fee will be charged.
