LOGISTICS

Balearic Islands
Accommodation: You may find accommodation information at UIB on their website. However, there is very limited space in their student residence and students should expect to search for their own private accommodation. Their website provides some resources on searching for a shared flat. Students searching for their own accommodation should expect that it can take a few weeks to over a month. Typically students live with other international students and do their own meal preparation in their apartments. UIB does not offer a dining service plan. 

Passport and Visa: Please visit the Education Abroad website for information on passports and visas.
