ISA Housing in Buenos Aires provides students with the opportunity to enjoy a truly memorable experience by living in an Argentine home with a local family or in a residencia with other international students from all over the world! All home stays are located in middle to upper class neighborhoods and offer glimpses of everyday life with easy access to your university and to city amenities. The experience of living in another culture will be both educational and rewarding. You just have to remember to stay open-minded and flexible at all times. You will have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to experience a new culture and place as a local would, so take advantage and let yourself truly become a "Porteño"!!
Also it is important to note that reliable internet access is not common in Argentina, thus homestays or residencias will not necessarily be equipped with the same standard of internet that students are accustomed to in the U.S. ISA does provide internet access at the ISA office, as well as the host universities.
It is important to note that due to the dynamic and culture of the city, most homestays consist of a single, older lady or an older couple. Although a few nuclear families are available, ISA cannot guarantee any specific type of homestay for students.
