How do I make my reservation?
If you have already decided for one of our university flats, you must contact our reservations department through the email email@example.com.
We will send you a form that you must complete and send. Once you send it, we will block your room, we will send the payment information to you and you will have 48 hours to do it.
What payments do I have to make to book?
To make the reservation you must pay the amount of the deposit, which is equivalent to one monthly fee. This amount will be refunded at the end of the stay if there are no damages caused by a misuse of the facilities of your university apartment.
Once we receive this payment, the reservation of place in the chosen student apartment is confirmed.
Can I cancel the reservation after making the payment?
You can cancel your reservation up to two months before the booked arrival date. That yes, you will have a penalty of 150 euros, which will deduct from the amount of the deposit you have paid. We will refund the rest of the deposit by bank transfer to the account that you indicate us. Remember that you must assume the possible bank commissions of the transfer.

Where will I have to collect my keys upon arrival in Barcelona?
We offer several alternatives: we can pick you up at the airport, take you to your student apartment and give you the keys. You can also hire someone to wait at the door of the apartment, accompany you to the apartment and explain to you where everything is located and how it works. If you prefer to go for free, you can pick up the keys at the address and schedule that we will provide a few days before your arrival.
When do I sign the lease?
You must pass by the office in c/ Beethoven, 15 7ª planta de Barcelona on the first working day after your arrival. The office hours are from Monday to Thursday from 9 to 14 and from 15 to 18 hours, and on Fridays from 9 to 15 hours.
We will have your contract ready to sign and you can personally meet the whole team.
When do I have to pay the first month of my stay?
The same day you sign the lease, you must pay the current month. If you arrive between the 1st and 15th, you will pay the full month. If you arrive after the 15th, you must pay only half a month. The months of January and September are always paid in full, regardless of the day of arrival.
Do I have to make any other payment upon my arrival?
You will have to pay the contracting expenses, which are 200 euros. If your school or university has a collaboration agreement with Barcelona design Flats you will have discounts on this amount. Consult our partners section and if your school does not have an agreement, do not hesitate to request it.
What happens if I cannot arrive on time?
Sometimes it can happen that you cannot travel on the scheduled date, either for personal reasons or for delays in visas. In this case, if you want to keep your place, you have to make the payment of the rent. Otherwise, the company reserves the right to cancel your reservation.
