Living Accommodations for Montevideo, Uruguay

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.

You will work with your Program Advisor to select the housing that's the best fit for you. The following USAC-arranged options are available for this program:


Staying with a host family is an excellent way to immerse yourself in the culture and language. Your family will welcome you into their home and provide you with breakfast and dinner daily. The families are located within a 20 to 30-minute commute to the university and are located along different traditional neighborhoods of Montevideo that have plenty of cafeterías, parks and plazas. Host families will be allocated on a first-come-first-served basis. We recommend this option if your priority is to learn the language as quickly as possible.

Residence Hall

The residence hall is only ten minutes away from the university by bus. It is a private residence hall with good security and very nice apartments. Apartments will be shared with other USAC students and local students will be also living in the residence.
