Practical information


The International Office will help you to find accommodation. There are two options for accommodation in shared flats with other students (in Mondragon or in Vitoria) or in a residence (in Vitoria):


Mondragon (Arrasate in Basque), [25.000 inhabitants], is 7 km from Eskoriatza [4.000 inhabitants], the town where the Faculty of Humanities and Education of Mondragon University is located. There are buses from Mondragon to Eskoriatza every 15 minutes.

 General conditions for shared flats

  • Flats are private and the owner decides the price and the conditions. The university does not decide the flat-share accommodation conditions, we are mediators between the owner and you, until you start living in the flat. Then, it is in your own responsibility.
  • The cost of a single room in a shared flat is around 350-400 euro. In this price are normally included normal electricity, heating and water bills. The meaning of normal is the previous year´s bills for the same period of time. Please, be very careful with the heating.
  • The contract periods start from the first day of the month of the arrival until the last day of the month of the departure. The rent has to be paid for entire months. 
  •  There is a deposit  to be paid the day you arrive at the flat. It is a deposit of one month of the monthly cost. This should be paid to the owner of the flat. The first day you arrive, you will have to pay both, 1 month´s  rent and 1 month´s deposit.
  • The owner will return the deposit  to you the deposit the day of your departure from Mondragon, provided you have cleaned your room and the flat, and the bills are similar to the previous year´s bills.
  • If the reservation is cancelled/changed later then five weeks before the contract period starts, the rent for 1 month must be paid.
  • Flats and rooms are equipped with essential furniture. Normally the bed has a pillow and duvet, but bed linen (sheets, and pillow-cases) is not provided.  Kitchen and bathrooms are shared with other students. Kitchen-utensils are included.
