Living in Barcelona is one of the most fantastic opportunities. The Sagrada Família, the Park Güell, the cathedrals, universities, bars, music… In the city there are a thousand and one things to do and monuments to visit. Different things happen all the time and every day, living in Barcelona is an adventure.
From the Unihabit university residences in Barcelona we offer you the opportunity to live in Barcelona, in Ciutat Vella and in Gràcia, two central areas of the city. We also want your experience to be unforgettable. To do this we have prepared a list of key dates in 2019 that you can not miss in Barcelona:
