Sparkville Residence

Our fabulous Sparkville Residence has 15 rooms (for 1-4 people), nearly all of them ensuite, and a communal kitchen and dining area which act as a great social gathering point that adds to the unique Sparkville atmosphere. There are also numerous chill out/social areas, such as the Plaza de las Américas (a little ‘outdoor’ space, with a TV and glass roof to protect you from rain or sun), a games room and a large roof terrace which is ideal for barbecues,  sunbathing and evening drinks, facilitating interaction with other students and staff.
