ACCOMMODATION & MEALS
During the entire program (from July 3rd to July 14th, 2023), students will be hosted at VITA STUDENT PEDRALBES (link is external), a brand new student accomodation with excellent modern facilities.
The participants, and their accompanying staff, will commute from there to the research centers distributed around the city and on the outskirts of Barcelona where they will be working on their research projects. The program also includes cultural and social activities that will take place at different points of interest around Barcelona.
Three main meals per day are included: breakfast is around 8:00 am, lunch around 1:00 pm and dinner around 8:00 pm (depending on the scheduling of each project, mealtimes may vary slightly to better accommodate activities and logistics). Breakfast and dinner will be at the VITA STUDENT PEDRALBES residence. Lunch will be at restaurants in or near the research centres where the different projects are taking place. If required, dietary needs will be catered for.
VITA STUDENT PEDRALBES
The VITA STUDENT PEDRALBES residence is located in the Pedralbes area, a very quite neighbourhood (Av. d'Esplugues, 102) and has good connections to all the different BIYSC research centers (some are only a few minutes walk away). It is also easily accessible by car through the main access roads to Barcelona.
This VITA international students residence, opened in 2022, will give you an exclusive insight to your future university life, and we will enjoy its upgraded facilities and friendly services and environement that will make us feel really welcome.
At VITA STUDENT PEDRALBES you will find:
Individual bedrooms with private bathroom· Air-conditioned rooms · Superfast free Wi-Fi · 24h Reception · Laundry services · Indoor and outdoor Gym · Garden · Outdoors swimming pool · Leisure and socializing spaces
In the case of participants traveling from time zones very different from Barcelona, we strongly recommend that they plan their arrival with enough time to adapt to the program schedule, in order to avoid jet lag once the BIYSC has started and thus, be able to enjoy the scientific experience to the fullest from the very first day.
If booked in advance, rooms in VITA STUDENT PEDRALBES (link is external) may be available for participants that arrive earlier or wish to leave later. All arrangements must be made directly with the BIYSC Team at email@example.com (link sends e-mail).
The cost for the extra nights and meals is at the participant’s own expense.
In case you are under 18 years old and plan to arrive early or leave later without an adult supervision, BIYSC Staff will plan to offer (limited) support, if possible.
