Living in NYU Buenos Aires housing is mandatory and a condition of enrollment.

Housing Process and Availability

NYU Buenos Aires housing staff will work with students prior to arrival to gauge housing preferences and make the best possible matches based on study habits, lifestyle, and personal goals. While NYU Buenos Aires housing staff will always endeavor to accommodate student preferences due to space limitations students may be placed in any of the housing possibilities regardless of submitted preferences. The majority of students enrolled at NYU Buenos Aires live in homestays.


Homestays allow students to live as a guest in an Argentine household and have become increasingly popular with NYU students. Homestays for NYU Buenos Aires are provided by a third party homestay provider that NYU has worked with since 2008.

There is no "typical" kind of homestay. Some homestay hosts are traditional families with children, while others are single individuals or couples. Some families have pets, some host more than one student, and others host just one student at a time. The amount of contact between the family and the student also varies.

Homestays are an excellent way to become fully immersed in Argentine culture. Most Argentine families speak some English and make an effort to understand and be understood. Students who live in homestays tend to learn Spanish very quickly and experience Buenos Aires in more meaningful ways. NYU's host families are accustomed to hosting students and are receptive to cultural differences.

Housing Charges and Payment

Housing will be billed directly to students' NYU Bursar account. Students will first receive an estimated housing charge, which has no bearing on your final assignment. Once known, actual housing charges will be placed on the account and the estimate will be removed. This typically occurs shortly after the start of the program.
