You will move in with your host family after orientation. The families are located within a 30- to 50-minute commute to the university and will provide you with a room and breakfast and dinner daily. Lunch, the main meal in Chile, is available in the university neighborhood at a modest cost. Boarding with a family provides an unmatched opportunity for practicing your Spanish and learning Chilean culture and customs and is highly recommended.

Staying in a homestay in Santiago will provide you with a synthesis of a big Latin American capital city coupled with the atmosphere of a local Chilean neighborhood; the neighborhoods of Providencia, Las Condes, and Ñuñoa mix residences and offices with small streets and expansive avenues, commercial centers, traditional boutiques, parks, and plazas. Areas with cafes, restaurants, and cinemas can be found in different parts of the city with a diversity of styles and local cultures. The fees for your homestay are included in the program fee for the summer program. See Fees & Deadlines for information on the homestay fees for the semester and yearlong programs.

To choose a privately owned residence hall or rental apartment, you will be responsible to locate and make your own rental agreements.
