Housing & Meals
NYU requires that all students live in NYU-arranged accommodation. Students will reside in a homestay with a local family. All homestay families have been hosting students for many years, and many have partnered with NYU Buenos Aires since spring 2008. Homestays are ideal for students who desire a true immersion experience. In most households, bathrooms are usually shared, and students either have kitchen privileges or share meals with their host families. Students will be shown where groceries and supermarkets are located in their neighborhood.
Starting in fall 2017 a limited number of NYU Buenos Aires students will reside in Concord Callao, a residence hall located in the exclusive Recoleta district. Metro and bus lines are within walking distances and there are many shops and restaurants in the area.
What to do when you first arrive
Head outside for a beautiful and scenic walk around your neighborhood. Take note of the incredible architecture.
Student discounts are sometimes available, so bring your ISIC with you.
Buenos Aires is known for having delicious restaurants in every neighborhood. If your diet includes meat, you absolutely must check out a popular parrilla to sample the asado.
