The University provides visiting scholars and researchers with information on the different types of accommodation available so that they can find that which best meets their needs and budget.

This service is provided thanks to an agreement signed by the UOC with the Barcelona Centre Universitari (BCU). The aim of this service is to find accommodation (apartments, rooms in shared apartments, student residences, etc.) for university faculty, researchers and students from the rest of Spain and further afield who have come to Barcelona to study or carry out internships and research. The BCU offers information and help with finding accommodation in Barcelona and all other non-academic aspects they are able to.

Thus, anyone who has to move to Barcelona to carry out activities at the UOC and who needs accommodation can find help by visiting the website or writing to info@bcu.cat. Please indicate your links to the UOC when doing so.

Beyond accommodation, the centre can also offer advice on signing up for the municipal register, opening a bank account, finding childcare facilities, etc. On certain days, their services are also available in Chinese, English, French and Russian.

If you have any doubts, suggestions or problems, you can also contact Eric Mesalles (suport_admrecerca@uoc.edu).
