Accommodation In Cuba for students

Find Programs
(Bachelor's, Master's & PhD)

Finding accommodation for a longer-term trip abroad is not always easy, whether you are coming as a student, intern, volunteer, or fully-fledged worker. In Cuba, you will live in a well ventilated and spacious house.

Each room houses 2-3 students and includes a private bathroom. The residence also features a common area where you can relax with other students. Meals will be prepared for you twice a day and coffee and tea are readily available.

Your parents and relatives no longer need to be concerned about your accommodation during your study abroad program in Cuba. RocApply offers free information and reservations for students prospecting to study abroad.

Do you arrange housing before you leave – and risk not liking the place you end up – or take the scarier route of finding a place when you arrive?

Finding a house or apartment before you come to Cuba is certainly the most reliable plan, and if it is your first time living abroad it can give a welcome sense of security.

Here you will have plenty of support from the institution and RocApply secure a room in the neighborhood. Additionally, there is a 24-hour security guard on most dormitories designated for students.

Whichever option you choose, you will need some help to find the best accommodation for your stay and this is where we come into play, check from our and accommodation page and book a dormitory today!

Types of student accommodation available in Cuba:

Residence Hall/Dorm

Life in a Residence Hall/Dorm is like a combination of living with a family and living in an apartment. You will most likely have a room with a bed, desk, and closet under this setup.

You will also probably have communal bathroom and shower facilities, communal cooking and dining facilities, and communal laundry facilities.


Homestay host families come in many shapes and sizes. You may be living with a traditional family comprised of a mother, father, children, and pets of course.

You may live in a divorced household, a single-parent household, a household with young children or teenagers or college-age children who go to the same college or university where you’ll study.


You will find that apartment life will give you the most independence (preferred by most students), but the most work.

If you do not think you can handle paying rent and utilities, paying bills, marketing and cooking for yourself, doing the dishes, doing laundry, cleaning, and working out roommate challenges on your own, then maybe apartment life in Cuba is not for you.

On the other hand, you gain a lot of independence and freedom because you can make your own rules and follow your own schedule without interference.
