Student life in Lima

If you’re a student in Lima, you’re definitely not alone. In size the city might seem small, but in the number of students in the city, it’s huge! The proportion of students in the city is large compared to other capitals worldwide, and it’s only increasing. For you to catch a nice house party shouldn’t be too difficult. However, we got to bring you the bad news: the workload of Lima’s universities is higher than the average European university.

A major factor in the life of a student abroad is housing. This is likely to be your closest friend group and where you will spend most of your time. Tellanto’s specialty is student housing and that’s why we have the best student rooms in Lima!

 

Semester exchange at Pontificia Universidad Católica del Perú

Lima receives an incredible amount of international students every year. This is due to the many universities PUCP has established a partnership with 210 universities from Europe, 79 from other South American universities, 60 from North America, 21 from Asia and 5 from Oceania.

At PUCP, there is an extensive list of studies you could follow. For this article it would be too many to mention, but you can check on the website of PUCP. There are three main faculties at PUCP for exchange students. These are the law faculty, education faculty and the faculty of management and senior management.

International Student housing in Lima

In Lima, living with a host family is quite common. Living with a host family is a great way to explore the culture of Lima, but limits your freedom in exploring the city and enjoying life as an exchange student. The PUCP offers a list of residences and families you could stay at during your exchange abroad.

In Lima, student houses for international students are also quite common. These are houses where you share the living room and kitchen with multiple other students that come to Lima for the same reason as you: to explore it and study. This would be a great way to meet new people and go out with. We have listed these houses on our Housing Abroad page.

Tellanto

The student housing brand Tellanto knows what it's like. It understands what you need to know, what you need to see, and what you need to hear about Latin America. The blog tells you all the ins and outs.
