Students are planning to move in soon, with dormitories already in the works.
The first is the Debi campus, which is part of the new Alhambra school in Madrid.
Students are considering using the building as a dormitory, which could include an art gallery, movie room and other space.
“We have lots of plans for the dormitory,” said one student.
“It’s not just for students, it could also be for other students.
We want to see a community.”
Another student said they have already discussed the idea with their parents and that the idea is on the table.
“They are going to be looking for a place for us to live,” said the student.
But the dorm could also become a temporary residence for students who are in Spain for a short period of time.
“The students who live in Madrid are going home for a few weeks,” said another student.
The plan is for the students to move to the campus in the autumn, and they plan to build their own homes in the meantime.
“This is something that is coming together very quickly,” said Debi’s mayor, Felipe Martins.
The university is in the process of creating a permanent residence and will hold an open house this Friday to discuss the plan.
The idea has attracted interest from many different countries, and some students have even been moving to Debi to live.
“Spain is not a country that allows to do this,” said Martins, “so we need to create something here.
But if it turns out to be a bad idea, we will make the best of it.”
The students hope to have a space for their families soon, but they are also keen to make sure their students get the best possible education.
