If you are coming with a study abroad program, the program will set up your housing and you are given these options:
- Home Stay: Living with a Peruvian family; many are available when studying abroad with a program. Meals and cleaning are provided.
- Residencia: Living in a home with 5-10 other international students. Must prepare your own meals with this option.
- Dorms: USIL dorms house international and Peruvian students. Must prepare your own meals with this option.
- Other: Find your own apartment or reside in a Hostel for the duration of your stay.
Keep in mind that most Peruvian students live at home with their families.
MY RECOMMENDATION: without hesitation I would recommend to anyone living with a host family! It is the best way to experience the Peruvian culture and food and surround yourself with the language! The families are all very welcoming and accomodating!
