Button - Overview      

The University of Alicante was created in October 1979 on the structure of the UNIVERSITY STUDIES CENTRE (CEU), which was started in 1968. Thus, Alicante recovered in this way its university studies centre that was suspended in 1834, when -after two centuries of existence- its precursor, the University of Orihuela was closed. The University of Orihuela was created by means of a Papal Bull in 1545 and had kept its doors open for two centuries (1610-1808). The province of Alicante, therefore, has an important university tradition and rich heritage as can be seen through the present Santo Domingo, the oldest building of the University of Orihuela, today recovered, thanks to an agreement between the Diocese and the University
2 Button - Fast Facts   

The university boasts about fifty study programs, over seventy university departments and research groups in the areas of Social Sciences and Law, Experimental Technology, Humanities, Education and Health Sciences, and five university research institutes developing the most outstanding research activities in the country.  InfoSheet_UniversityOfAlicante_16-17.pdf

To determine the CSULB equivalency for Spanish course credits divide the credits by two (e.g., 6 Spanish credits equals 3 CSULB units).
4 Button - Housing   

Students can elect to find their own housing option or have the university's Accomodation Office arrange a place for them to stay. More information about alojamiento will be sent to the student directly from the university upon his/her acceptance.
5 Button - Financing   

Students who are eligible for financial aid may apply their award package to most semester or year long study abroad programs. Students are also eligible for either need-based subsidized or unsubsidized non-need-based federal direct loans. A list of alternative student loans is available in the CSULB Office of Financial Aid (BH-123).

ASI Scholarship

•   (Sp. 2011) I lived in the city of Alicante and commuted to San Vicente. Most people commute because San Vicente has very little to do in regards to night life. Buses are at most times efficient. I shared a floor with three roommates. I had my own room. Most people in Spain live like this. I arranged to pay about 135 Euros plus utilities split between all of us. The cost surpassed 220 Euros so I highly recommend finding a place with utilities included. has all listings of available rooms. They are shared with other roommates. Look for ones that have utilities AND internet included. Search for ones in Alicante or San Vicente and check the map so you can research the location.
