UCA hasn´t gotstudent residences at university campus.However, in UCA International office we have a large database.The options are:
rooms in family houses for rent
furnished apartments for rent by owner (ready to move in)
real estate and trusted organizations that can help you to get any one of them.
For international students, the family houses are very popular because allow them to live with a family in Argentina, learn spanish, and knowledge of argentine customs (habits, food, outings, etc.).
There are a lot of student residences in Buenos Aires city, this is a very attractive option because you can share your experieces with other students and young people from all over the world.
We recommend to not live alone if you decide to rent an apartment. Furthermore, the apartment shouldn´t be located in streets or areas that are deserted at night or on weekends. It´s very important that appartments are located in buildings used exclusively for housing and no for commercial offices. The commercial offices are emptied on weekends at night weekdays.
It´s very important to always have the phone from a friend or college roommate for any problem that may arise; that will make you feel more confident and together.
We recommend looking for housing in the following residential areas which usually are the most secure: Retiro, Barrio Norte, Recoleta, Palermo y Belgrano. Unfortunately, in Puerto Madero, where is located the campus of UCA, the prices are unreasonable for students because it is the most expensive area of the city.
