Student life in Mexico City
If you decide to spend your semester exchange in Mexico City then there is no doubt you will have a blast. The vibrant city has everything to offer that you can possibly wish for and more. With a population of 8.8 million, it’s truly a city that never sleeps. The stores are 24/7 open, there’s always a taxi ready and there are always people around. The city has grown so much over the last decades that it’s basically becoming larger than its state.
The many touristic places in Mexico City offer you lifetime of sights to visit. This has attracted many internationals to come ‘visit’ the city for either an internship or a semester exchange. But this often lasts longer than many initially expected. There’s a saying about Mexico that many come visit the country, but only a few are leaving. The incredible culture, weekends full of parties and of course the delicious food is for many people a reason to come back!

Luckily you will not be required to pay the tuition with prices going up to 9,200 EUR for Undergraduates and 14,700 for Postgraduates. This is incredibly high for a country with an average income of 800 EUR per month, while all the prices of private universities in countries like Mexico are this high.

Many universities provide a certain Buddy Program. This is where you get connected to a Mexican student who is willing to make sure that you will feel at home as soon as possible. Feel free to ask where you can find the best tacos, what courses not to take (you can probably still change in the first few weeks) or at what time the pool party starts.

Student Housing in Mexico City
A great benefit of coming from Europe to Mexico City is that the cost of living is cheaper than you might be used to. This helps you a lot with finding a nice accommodation. Although it’s one of the most amazing cities, you can easily get lost when surfing the internet for a nice place to live. It’s especially hard if you cannot even see the room before your arrival. Therefore we always recommend to first book an Airbnb, or something similar, for the first week while you go meet up with landlords to visit the house. To make your experience the best it’s not only important to have a nice room, but also to live in with awesome international students. This gives you the feeling of a new family with whom you are going to explore the new world Mexico City has to offer you.
At Tellanto.com we have a lot of experience with students going to Mexico City. We carefully listen to their do’s and don’ts and have been to Mexico ourselves. This all to help you with an amazing time abroad. Based on their feedback Tellanto.com has selected the best international student houses for you to live at. The criteria we demanded are a safe neighborhood, English landlord, living with international and national students, a private bedroom with a large bed and at a great location to go out and to go to a university. Have a look yourself at the best student houses listed in Mexico.
