How to Find an International Student House in Guadalajara

One of the most important cities in Mexico, Guadalajara provides a rewarding experience for international students during their semester exchange program in Mexico.The students get to learn about the Mexican culture, travel to exotic destinations and meet amazing people while studying in one of the prestigious Mexican universities. But before arriving in Guadalajara, a student needs to take care of many important tasks like obtaining a visa and securing housing.

Below are a few tips that will help you find an international student house in Guadalajara.

Choose the right accommodation

First of all, you need to be clear about what kind of housing you want to opt for while staying in Guadalajara. You can either go for student residences, your own private accommodation or shared international student houses.

Each mode of accommodation has its own pros and cons, and you need to consider them according to your preferences. For example, if you prefer proximity to the university campus, then you would want to stay in dorms.

However, they can get quite noisy and might affect your privacy. If you prefer living on your own and want freedom and flexibility in the way you live, you would want to rent an apartment. This is where you can retain your privacy and also live with other international students in a lively atmosphere by renting an international student room.

 

Educate yourself on different neighborhoods

While choosing accommodation in Guadalajara, you need to select a neighborhood that meets your expectations. Considering aspects like the distance from your university, safety, nightlife, public transportation, the availability of grocery stores and restaurants are crucial while selecting a neighborhood.

The bustling metropolis Guadalajara has many diverse neighborhoods. Each neighborhood has different features, and where you decide to stay depends on your preferences.

The neighborhood Zapopan is a great area for students as it is really close to Universidad Autónoma de Guadalajara. Staying in Zapopan is also convenient for students studying in Tecnológico de Monterrey Guadalajara, as the university is located near this neighborhood. To be near amazing nightlife, you can choose to live in Chapultepec area, as it is known for the vibrant nightlife options.

If upscale amenities are your thing, then living in Providencia is the way to go. It is a safe, posh neighborhood and provides comfortable accommodation options. However, if you prefer a more local experience, then you may want to live in Santa Teresita.

Acquiring the correct information and being completely sure of the neighborhood you want to live in will make the process of finding the best accommodation a lot easier.

Preparing in advance is especially important when you are traveling to a new country. Sorting out your preferences, finding the correct information and contacting relevant people can take time.
