Buenos Aires, Argentina
Visiting Buenos Aires, a local real estate rental firm, helps program participants secure housing. The firm offers two types of accommodations, each priced for the 15-day program.
- Lodging with a local family, Spanish not required: Approximately $500-$600 (includes breakfast).
- Lodging in a studio or apartment with a private bedroom and kitchen: Approximately $1,000-$1,200 (no meals included).
Accommodations are located in excellent neighborhoods such as Recoleta or Puerto Madero, within easy access of the university. Visiting Buenos Aires also arranges suitable housing for persons with disabilities when requested.
As students may want to room together in housing secured on their own or with the assistance of Visiting Buenos Aires, a list of registered students with contact information is updated regularly and made available to all participants. Students also may wish to travel to Argentina several days prior to the start of the program and take advantage of some of the magnificent sightseeing opportunities.
