Program Description:
Beginning with the Spring 2024 application cycle, admission to the SLU-Madrid program will be subject to enrollment capacity. Once the maximum enrollment is reached, applications will close, even if it’s before GEO’s advertised application deadline. There will not be a waitlist, and additional applications to SLU-Madrid will not be accepted. 

We encourage advance planning and research to ensure that a program is a good fit for your academic, personal, and career goals. Given the limited enrollment capacity, students applying to SLU-Madrid should submit their application early, and are strongly encouraged to have a back-up study abroad application.

For this program, students are required to live in SLU-sponsored housing. SLU offers housing with host families (homestays) only. Students are not permitted to live in independent housing. Independent housing waivers will only be considered if a registered accommodation is on file with Student Access Services.

About SLU-Madrid:
Students directly enroll in classes at the Saint Louis University European Campus (SLU-Madrid) located in Madrid, Spain. The campus is in a quiet residential neighborhood, (near el Guzman el Bueno Metro stop) 20 minutes from the city center. It is a small campus with a cafeteria, student lounge, STEM labs, dance and art studios, as well as a bookstore and a library. Most classes are taught in English, however there are Spanish language and Spanish content courses available. SLU-Madrid offers over 200 courses each semester which fulfill degree requirements for nearly 100 undergraduate majors. There are approximately 750 students enrolled at the university, of which half are from the United States and a quarter from Spain. The housing offered by SLU-Madrid is a homestay with breakfast and dinner included. Students are encouraged to meet locals by participating in student clubs, joining sports teams, and volunteering within the community.
