Get to know the new student residence, aparto Barcelona Pallars

From September, The Creative District of Barcelona will have a new location for young students. This is aparto Barcelona Pallars, a local, vibrant and globally connected student accommodation, which will allow the community of emerging talents to discover their possibilities in an area with a multitude of possibilities. While studying, aparto Barcelona Pallars is a place where support, encouragement and hospitality will always be on offer. A unique space where young people can not only find friends for life, but also live experiences that will mark them for life.

Aparto Barcelona Pallars is located in the unique and innovative Creative District of Barcelona, just 3 minutes walk from the centre of Poblenou, 15 minutes from the beach and 20 minutes from the centre of Barcelona, with excellent connections to the rest of the city.

The building has a wide range of rooms, a total of 743 to choose from according to the needs of each guest. Double room: the best option for sharing the student life experience with a friend. Suite: an elegant and modern room, ideal for those who want more privacy at an affordable price, where the bathroom is completely private. Studio: a spacious room where the bathroom and kitchen are private, ideal for those who want to have their own space. The rates include the use of all common areas, such as the gym, study areas, wifi, cinema and games rooms, 24-hour security and all utilities included.

As aparto Barcelona Pallars caters mainly for young adults who are just discovering life as independent individuals, they consider that art can offer a good support in this journey of self-discovery. In fact, this new space has recently joined the Poblenou Urban District community in order to transmit the same values as the association and contribute to promoting Barcelona’s Creative District. “Art develops lateral thinking, makes us creative and allows us to interpret what is happening around us. There are many talented artists around us, but there are not enough spaces accessible to them. Moreover, life as we know it – chaotic and busy – doesn’t allow us to stop and admire their work properly and recognise its value,” says director Valeria Muscatelo Rius. Indeed, for aparto Barcelona Pallars, collaborating extensively with global and local artists to bring positive change to the student housing sector is vital. Because art is a collaborative process, it creates community, enriches the neighbourhood and inspires collaboration and self-discovery. These are all fundamental pillars of aparto. When they find talent, they work with them in an ongoing dialogue to express the artist’s identity and provide a coherent representation of what aparto is and will be. “By involving artists and asking them to personalise our spaces, they bring art into direct contact with our guests,” Muscatelo concludes.
