Seville is a fantastic city for university students. Every year it attracts hundreds of new students, so you will find some shared flats and student residences in the area.

If you are thinking about staying in a student residence, we will help you choose the right one for you. Before making this decision, it’s important to keep several things in mind, so we’ll explain some of the most essential ones.

Research what’s on offer and what’s not

Although student residences tend to be the most comfortable accommodation for university students, not all of them offer the same things. For example, in the kitchen, you’re sure to have a microwave and fridge, but you’ll need to bring your own plates, dishes and pots and pans.

Likewise, some offer rooms with accessories such as a full-length mirror or a cork board for your notes. Others may not include these amenities, so you may have to bring them yourself.

Having a clear idea of what will be included in your accommodation will help you choose between different student residences in Seville.

Know the amenities

As well as the fittings and furnishings in the rooms, the services offered by the residence are important. When you start living on your own, you will need to wash your clothes, clean your room, change the bed sheets, take out the rubbish and more. Even cooking.

All those chores that up to now have been taken care of by your parents will be your responsibility. And the truth is that they are time-consuming. Especially when you’re a student and you’re already on top of your university work.

You will appreciate living in a student residence that offers laundry services, dining room, cleaning, and change of sheets and towels. These services will make your life easier and your stay more enjoyable, so pay attention to them.

Take a look at the facilities

The best student residences in Seville do not only include shared rooms and flats. They also have common areas designed for the enjoyment, leisure and entertainment of the residents. At LIV Student, we have:

  • Roof terrace
  • Swimming pool
  • Lounge area
  • Games room
  • Study room
  • Cinema
  • Karaoke
  • Dining room

We even have a gym and yoga room for you to exercise and relax after a long day.

A student residence should not be seen as just a place to sleep, but as a possible second home. That’s why the facilities are important to make you feel comfortable.

Check security

In a student residence, security is important for the residents to feel that they are in a watched over and cared for environment.

At LIV Student, we have closed-circuit security cameras to keep our common areas, corridors and main doors under surveillance. This system allows our team to maintain control over what is happening in each space.

Ask about opening hours

During the day, there will always be staff members in the corridors of the residence, in the dining room or at the reception desk. However, during the night, there may be times when only students are in their rooms.

Unfortunately, emergencies can also occur at night and the residents would have no one to turn to. For this reason, we recommend that you check that there will always be staff available regardless of the time or day.

At LIV Student, we provide you with 24/7 reception numbers. You will also have a concierge service available day and night at any time.

Find out about WiFi connection

Nowadays, we can connect to a WiFi signal almost everywhere, so all the student residences you visit will probably offer you an internet connection.

However, we advise you to ask about the speed and range of the network. You will probably only be able to connect to WiFi from the ground floor while you are in the living room or common areas of the building, but not from your room.

It is also essential to know how many devices you can connect. Especially if you have a mobile phone, laptop, tablet and you want internet access on all of them.

At LIV Student, we offer a WiFi connection that reaches 100MB speed. In addition, you can connect up to 8 devices from your room. This is the most comfortable way to live, especially for a student.

Make sure you live in a good location

Location is a decisive factor when choosing a student residence in Seville. From Monday to Friday, you will have to walk from the building to the university, so it is best to be as close as possible.

To choose the best student residence in Seville, think about everything that will make your day-to-day life easier, and don’t hesitate to visit LIV Student!
