This next semester, a new phase will start where you will have the chance to make the most out of your experience at the University of Navarra.
For some, a new country, for others, a new city or a new culture, but for all, an exciting new challenge. Some will be having their first experience at University, and some others, that were already staying at Pamplona, have decided to carry on their adventure at CampusHome.
We assume you would like to know when our apartments will be ready, what documents are needed, where and with who will you be sharing your experience with and how can you communicate with us.
In this post, we will provide details on what are the things you need to know before your arrival to Navarra and CampusHome so that you can spend your energy enjoying your holidays.
If you would like answers to all these questions, this post is for you.
- First things first. All your documents on point.
- Who and where am I going to live with?
- When can I enter my apartment?
- What happens if I arrive before the entrance date? If my family comes with me, where can they stay?
- Do I need to purchase anything once I am in my apartment?
- What happens if I go to my apartment and I detect an issue?
- CampusHome: your great community from the beginning
First things first. All your documents on point.
A person can spend a lot of time thinking on travelling and adventures… but without a valid passport, a visa or an ID, in case you are an international student, you will not be able to come over. Before anything, make sure all your documents are ready, so that you can focus entirely on figuring out the rest!
These will be the documents you will need:
- If you are an EU citizen, you just need your ID or your passport
- If you are not from the EU: You can find all available information in the following links, of the University and the Spanish Government.
You can ask us for a document of proof of residence at CampusHome (for your visa) through your general means of communication or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
After this, last step before your arrival! If you have not received it yet, you will soon receive your CampusHome contract. You just need to fill it, return it to email@example.com, with a copy of your ID or Passport, and one from your parent or legal tutor and complete the security deposit payment if you haven’t already!
Once you come to Pamplona, you can schedule a meeting at the city hall to establish Pamplona as your place of residence this will allow you to open a bank account. You can schedule it online here. You will need to take your Passport with you, and CampusHome should have done the rest for you, as long as you let us know in advance! (Sending over to the administration the document stating you are living with CampusHome).
Who and where am I going to live with?
This is one of the most common questions of our new students. And there is something we can tell you, and that is, what our method is. You are going to love it!
It is important to live in a nice place (we know our stuff around that topic…), but the people you will share an experience with is something extremely relevant as well, since it will not matter if you live comfortably unless you feel at home. Don’t you agree?
Don’t worry: we got your back. Assigning apartments without knowing who will end up living there would be a rookie mistake. And after 25 years of service… It is a mistake we long ago left behind!
What is taken into consideration?
- Your personal preferences/ Friends who you want to live with
- Your age, studies, faculty, location that you may have preferred, culture and general other preferences.
- Our MBTI test
Exactly, the Myers-Briggs indicator, is our main tool to add some science to our experience. The MBTI model was created close to eighty years ago, and has been used mostly in the pedagogy area, group dynamics, professional selection, identification of leadership skills and personal development (you can find out more about MBTI tests by clicking here).
Cool, right? Once we have gathered all the tests, confirmed the size of our community, we will assign people to places and to (important as well) to personnel. This will happen very shortly before the start of the semester.
An honest test will make us find you your Samwise, your Hermione, your Buzz Lightyear, your Barden Bellas… You get the idea. This takes us to our next point.
When can I enter my apartment?
The semester is about to start and the CampusHome team is working against the clock so that all the apartments are ready and in condition for entry. The goal: guarantee that everything will be perfectly prepared and ready when our students arrive.
The date of entry for January 2020 will be from the 6th of January, onwards. For August 2020 it will be from the 29th, onwards. Prior to your arrival, you will receive an email asking you to schedule the date and hour when you will be collecting your keys, and the goodies we will prepare for you. Since our particular black Friday will be during those days, we need to have enough availability to attend all of our community arriving those dates with maximum quality.
It may be your first time in the city, so, if you need it, we will have a welcoming team that will walk you to your new home. Don’t forget that a lot of students will be in your same situation, so, when the moment comes, some humor and patience will be good allies!
What happens if I arrive before the entrance date? If my family comes with me, where can they stay?
We know some of you will be nervous about your arrival and may be thinking of the possibility of showing up even earlier for introduction weeks, or just to get to know the city a little better.
We have thought of that as well, and that is why we have partnered with different hotels and hostels so that you can receive a discount and find yourself in a strategic position before entering your apartment. If your parents intend to stay once the semester has started, these would be perfect spots to stay as well. These need to be booked by phone or on their official website. You will find below a list of the hotels that will support you.

Do I need to purchase anything once I am in my apartment?
CampusHome will be in charge of everything throughout the year. However, there are several personal belongings that, due to their hygiene/personal nature, we do only provide for our Premium service ¡Remember to only purchase these items once you have been in your room, to be sure that the size of your sheets meet the size of your bed. Our current standard size is the main individual, standardized in Spain for years.
These are the things you will need to purchase:
- Desk lamp
You can find right below several links to different malls and stores with close locations to where your apartment will be. If you click in the different links below, they will show you the google maps address from our offices in CampusHome:
- El Corte Inglés: it is the largest mall in Pamplona. It has 8 floors and you will be able to find everything that you need. It is located 15 minutes away from the area you will live in.
- Carrefour: it is a large supermarket, located 10 minutes away from our main offices. It is a comfortable option.
