International student accommodation in Madrid

International student accommodation in Madrid

So, you’ve been given the green light to study in Spain and, after much deliberation, you’ve decided that Madrid is the city for you. In your imagination, you’re already studying in a Spanish university or language school, cycling around the city, checking off the tourist attractions and eating your own bodyweight in tapas and churros con chocolate. There’s just one outstanding detail: you have to find international student accommodation in Madrid and rent a room. Sometimes, student accommodation is impersonal, set in an inconvenient location and something to be endured rather than enjoyed. At best, international student accommodation in Madrid is Wunderhouse.


We opened Wunderhouse Madrid in 2015 because we saw a unique opportunity to make international student accommodation unforgettable for all the right reasons. The residence is one-of-a-kind. Located down a quiet street in Chueca, one of Madrid’s trendiest areas, the high ceilings, sweeping staircase, stained glass windows, panelled walls, central courtyard garden and spacious communal areas are breathtaking and date back to the 1870s. You’ll feel like you’re living in a movie – but one with high tech modern comforts that include your own en-suite bathroom, WiFi, 24-hour security and your fingerprint as your round-the-clock ‘key’ to the main entrance door.


When you’re not studying, you can hit the gym, relax in a deckchair on the terrace, cook a meal in one of the shared kitchenettes (there’s a supermarket just down the street) or catch up with other Wunderhouse Madrid residents from around the world at one of our community events. Our 24-hour security means you can sleep peacefully on your memory foam mattress, content in the knowledge that you’re staying in truly unique and welcoming international student accommodation in Madrid. We wouldn’t be surprised if you make friends for life. The friendliness of all of our students from around the world is one of the things that we love most about Wunderhouse. You’ll arrive feeling a little like a tourist but we think after a stay in our multi-cultural, international student accommodation in Chueca, you’ll leave Madrid feeling far more like a Madrileno.

Madrid’s Royal Botanical Garden is located in front of the Prado Museum. Study like hundreds of Madrid students before you: sitting under the shade of a tree in the 8-hectare botanical garden which is organised into three outdoor terraces and has around 1,500 trees to choose from.


  1. Buen Retiro Park

The gardens of El Retiro host an annual book fair plus plenty of concerts popular with students and locals. Pack a picnic and then take it in turns to row around the lake whilst you and your friend take it in turns to study or test each other’s memory with a rapid-fire round of questions.


  1. Celicioso
    This gluten free bakery and café is just a few minutes walk away from Wunderhouse Madrid. Thanks to the free WiFi – and quite possibly the best banana bread in the city – it’s popular with students wanting to enjoy some quiet study time over coffee and cake.


  1. Le Pain Quotidien

Loved from its home city of Brussels to New York’s Brooklyn, Le Pain Quotidien’s branch five minutes walk away from our Wunderhouse Madrid residence is good for group study sessions at their big, communal table stretching down the middle of the room.


  1. La Central Bookshop

Whether you want to browse (and buy) books or simply prefer to sit in the café and make the most of their WiFi for a focused study session, this is arguably one of the best bookshops in Madrid. There are also plenty of in-store events that are worth checking out when you’ve finished studying.


  1. Biblioteca Nacional de España

The National Library of Spain, isn’t only the largest library in Spain, it’s also one of the biggest and most impressive libraries in the world. It’s hard not to be inspired by the architecture alone. Open until late, it’s practically a prerequisite to enjoy a weekly visit here when you study in Madrid.


  1. Biblioteca Pública Municipal Iván de Vargas
    Step inside the historic building and you’ll find books dedicated to art, architecture, history, film, literature and even a room dedicated to all things Madrid… this library is a fantastic place to study if you want to do some research.


  1. Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofia
    Whether you’re in Madrid to study art history or you’re studying an entirely different subject, it’s worth setting aside some time to stroll around the museums at times when they offer free entry. Spain’s national museum of 20th Century art is worth several visits. They offer free admission on Mondays and Wednesday – Saturday 7pm – 9pm and on Sundays from 1.30pm – 7pm. They also have a café and small seating areas for you to sit and make notes.


  1. Museo del Prado

Spain’s main national art museum houses one of the best collections of European art dating from the 12th Century to the early 19th Century. Students aged 18-25 are always allowed free access but if this doesn’t apply to you, head there to browse the collection and enjoy some study time 6pm-8pm Monday to Saturday and 5pm-7pm on Sundays and holidays.


  1. Jardín Tropical Estaciónde Atocha

In winter, if you’re craving a tropical fix, you only have to travel as far as the Atocha train station. The large indoor garden at the station is lined with benches where you can sit in the middle of the ‘urban jungle’ and enjoy some uninterrupted study time.
