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!

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.
