Living Accommodations for Florianópolis, Brazil

Not all housing options may be available during your program period. Due to local health guidelines, you will likely be placed in single room housing. Please contact the Program Advisor for more information.

All accommodations are located in the center of the island, as close to the university as possible. The university is served well by a regular bus service. Inexpensive student dining halls are available for lunch and snacks. We offer three different housing options:

Homestays

Staying with a host family gives you the chance of fully immersing in the Brazilian culture.

Staying with a host family is an excellent way to immerse yourself in Brazilian culture, quickly improve your Portuguese, and meet locals. Your family will welcome you into their home and provide various services including meals. Host families will be allocated on a first come, first serve basis. We recommend this option if your priority is to learn the language as quickly as possible.

Shared Apartments

Shared apartments involve living with USAC and other international students, close to the university. This option offers a bit more independence and is good for students with particularly strict dietary requirements or other preferences.
