Residence hall or host family? It was my biggest question before coming to Salamanca. It seems to me that living with a host family helps you integrate into the Spanish culture more easily but on the other hand, choosing to live in a residence hall might give you more freedom. I was assigned to live in Colegio Cuenca-a student residence hall close to the Facultad de derecho and Facultad de economía. So far I have enjoyed living in a residence hall. It took a while to get adjusted but I think it is great to embrace what you have and try to jump out of your comfort zone once in a while.
