Life at Melon

Resident assistants

At Melon District we introduced the Resident Assistants position, residents appointed to help boost the communication between their fellow students and residents and the residence's management team. Here you can find out a little more about each of them, so you know who to speak to if you have any issues during your stay at the residence.


Elisa Savasta
Elisa Savasta27 years old, from Cagliari, Italy Studying Odontology in the UB

I am committed, responsible, organized, persuasive, and I know how to listen to people and put myself in their shoes to understand their problem better.

During my stay at the residence, I had the pleasure of making friends with students on my floor and those on other floors. This gave me the chance to meet people from other countries and learn about their cultures, language, food and other things that have allowed me to grow on a personal level.

When I arrived in Barcelona and at Melon District, my Resident Assistant helped me resolve a lot of problems by showing me the services closest to the residence and also helped me with the various problems I encountered when I opened my Spanish bank account. In that vein, I would like to bring my personal experiences and my skills to the table and my ability to work as a team to help new students.

My hobbies are music, travelling, cooking, skiing, and generally any kind of sport but especially volleyball.

If you live in any of the following rooms:  Melon Flat from E0 to E4, feel free to contact me.

Juan Pedro Marí
Juan Pedro Marí Colomar20 years old, from Ibiza Studying Philosophy at UB

I consider myself a very outgoing person, good social skills, patient, all of which will help maintain constant communication among residents. Putting the group before the individual and seeing that other people are enjoying activities that I have helped plan fulfills me.

More than 1 year of living in the residence have allowed me to observe the responsibility that comes with being a Resident Assistant.

Honestly, I would love to do anything I can to help residents have the best stay possible. I have contact with people in both my work experience and my academic studies which makes interpersonal skills easy for me.

I believe that every student should have the certainty that their needs will be met and that is why the figure of a Resident Assistant is essential. Someone you trust enough to go when you have any kind of questions or problems, and that you know that you can count on.

My hobbies are: the philosophy, learning new things, travelling and playing sports.

If you live in any of the following rooms: Melon Flats from B2 to B7 feel free to contact me.

I would consider myself as outgoing, friendly, attentive, sociable and responsible.

This is my forth year living at Melon District Marina, so I think I could bring my experience to other residents since I am also one of them and I would like to help them with what I can, especially since the majority of them feel like I did the first couple of days. I am a very open person, so I wouldn’t have any trouble talking to residents and helping them with anything they may need.

My hobbies are swimming and music.

Julia Cueto
Julia Cueto21 years old, from Zaragoza Studying International Business Economics at UPF

I consider myself a doer, with a lot of ideas; some are good and others not so much, but I have a lot to offer and my drive to improve my surroundings is constant.

I can see how residents react with certain activities and ideas in Melon, so it’s easy for me to give feedback regarding the residence’s events and services.

Last year I lived in the USA, which has helped me relate to different cultures.

My main hobbies are theatre, basketball, dance, skiing, and hiking. 

If you live in any of the following rooms: Melon Flats from D3 to D7 feel free to contact me.

Lucia Rodríguez19 years old, from Almeria Studies at UPF

My experience at Melon District Marina has been very rewarding. It’s given me the chance to live in a space where I can study very comfortably, in part because the rooms are very well lit.

I like the diversity of cultures at the residence, as it gives me the opportunity to discover new things and make friends from different parts of the world, with whom I can enjoy exploring the city.

In my capacity as a Resident Assistant, I will offer commitment, initiative, good communication and teamwork with the rest of the RAs, so as to meet, connect with and help all of the residents assigned to me.

If you live in one of the following rooms: Melon Flats B1, C2, C3, C4 and C5 feel free to contact me.

Yaiza Almendros
Yaiza Almendros20 years old, from Alcoy Studying Business Management at UPF

I think my personality and positive attitude can make other residents feel at home and allow them to come to me for assistance if they need it.

Melon District Marina is my new home, and from the first day it actually felt like home. As soon as I arrived and my parents had left, I knocked on the doors of everyone on my floor to meet my new roommates, who are now much more than that, they are friends for life.

Drawing from my experience of having lived here for two years, I think I will be a great asset in helping the rest of the residents adapt and have them feel as at home as I do. For example, my knowledge of other languages, like Catalan, Spanish and English will be very useful in communicating with new residents, as well as my open and outgoing personality.

My hobbies include sports in general, reading, listening to music and meeting new people.

If you live in one of the following Melon Flats C0, C1, D1, and D2 or Studios from A415 to A417, and from A511 to A514, and from A612 to A614 feel free to contact me.
