5 things to know when moving to student residences

There are moments that mark your life. Choosing the right place to live during your university years is one of them, so here are 5 fundamental things you need to know about living in a student residence.

1. You will travel around the world without leaving the common areas

You might have heard a million times that your college years will be the best years of your life. That university friends are friends for life.  We’ll add one more, if you stay in a Nexo student residence you will make friends from all over the world. In our residences, national and international students stay in a multicultural and pluralistic environment. But it won't be at the cost of sharing a room. You can live in a single room or in a single apartment and share adventures in the countless common areas such as the terraces of the Galdós university student residence in Madrid, the endless Games room of the Lope de Vega residence in Alcalá de Henares ( or in the cinema of the Garbí residence in Barcelona).

2. Not everything will be fun: you will spend hours in the study areas

Remember: you will have to spend between 4 and 6 hours a day studying or doing homework to graduate according to a study by the University of Utah.

Although there is a lot of fun and good vibes at our residences, the ultimate goal is this: graduating from university. That's why in our student residences, in addition to having your own study area in your room, we have the perfect place to work with your notes and papers: the common study areas. There you will have the perfect light, optimal ventilation, large tables and chairs so you can have study marathons. Needless to say, there is high-speed wifi throughout the residence so you can do it wherever you please.

3. You will practice the "mens sana in corpore sano"

If you are one of those people who have paid gym fees and never set one foot inside, or those who think about eating healthy but never do ... you no longer have an excuse. In our student residences, we have gyms equipped with a cardio zone, weights and yoga equipment. Our daily menus always have a healthy option to keep your iron levels up. And finally, many of our residences have multipurpose rooms in which you will be able to enjoy your favourite hobby (rehearsal rooms, cinema ...)

4. Being close to everything is the key to not missing anything

We carefully choose the locations of our university residences so that they are close to the university and well connected with the cultural and social centres of the cities where we are located.

All the residences have 24/7 security, weekly room cleaning (with a change of bed linen), daily cleaning of the common areas, maintenance service and a concierge that will be happy to collect your online purchases. Do not worry, we have everything so you won’t miss out.

5. The all-inclusive will be your daily life

Not having to worry about paying the wifi or water bill, going to the supermarket, doing the weekly cleaning of the house or calling the plumber because something has broken is an advantage. In NEXO student residences everything is included: food (full board), air conditioning, maintenance, counselling services etc. So you can dedicate yourself to what really matters: studying and enjoying yourself.
