Student Life & Housing

Student Life

Interaction with locals and other international students is key to a successful study abroad experience. Many campus activities, e.g., Noche Internacional, showcase UB's strong international student program. Joining a student club or sports team is a great way to meet local students--soccer, running and yoga are just a few options. Attending concerts, trying the tango, or spending a lazy Sunday afternoon picking through the colorful streets and flea market of San Telmo are just a few of the possibilities. There's so much to discover in and around Buenos Aires-one can even visit neighboring Uruguay for the day! Learn more about sports at UB: http://www.ub.edu.ar/deportes.php

Housing

Students are provided lodging with an Argentine host family, which allow students to further develop their language skills outside of a classroom setting and increase their understanding of modern Argentine culture. The assigned host family is likely to live within easy reach of the university in a pleasant, secure neighborhood; the daily commute will be no more than a short bus ride or a reasonable walk. The home might be found in a century-old heritage structure or a contemporary apartment building. The program fee includes a private room with two meals per day (breakfast and dinner).
