San Carlos de Bariloche
We recommend that students take advantage of the homestay option to practice Spanish and be exposed to local culture. Middle class families are carefully selected and provide each student with a private room. Do not assume that you are too old for a homestay as many of our students are older than their host "parents". For many of our students, their homestay is one of the most rewarding experience.

The host families are carefully selected, Do not forget to specify on the registration form any dietary requirements, allergies, smoker / nonsmoker, etc., as well as any other preferences. The accommodations coordinator of each school, always at the students' disposal, can change your family accommodation if the need arises. Most families are within 20-25 minutes walking distance to school. In the event that the homestay is farther away, students can use public transportation (subway or bus), the ride being approximately 12-15 minutes. Laundry is not included in family accommodations.

Shared Apartments:
One of the most popular housing option is the shared apartment, where you will live with other students. No meal plan is available with the shared apartments, however you have kitchen access to prepare your own meals. The rooms are furnished with bedding provided. The bathroom and kitchen are communal. Students should bring their own towels. Furthermore, cooperation with other students is necessary as the common areas are maintained only once per week. Most of the apartments are 20-25 minutes away by public transportation. Keys will be given to the student upon arrival on the Sunday afternoon before classes begin.

Lodging information is sent 7 - 14 days prior to departure. Information of where to go and how to get there will be sent to students prior to departure. In addition, NRCSA will send emergency contact in case of any problem.
