Student Accommodation in Buenos Aires Reviews

Student Accommodation FAQ
Homestay

Can you get to know the family before travelling?

You will meet the family the day you arrive to Argentina and to their home. All host families were checked and approved by the Expanish staff and the majority have worked with us for a long time and have hosted many students.

Is it only one student per homestay?

We have several host families with whom we work and some families can accommodate one student at a time, others can host many at the same time. Many of our hosts have only one available room (homes in Buenos Aires are typically not large), so we cannot guarantee you will be with other students. If you prefer one or another option, you can make it clear when you register and we will do everything possible to fulfill your special request within our host family network.

Do all host families have WiFi?

Yes, all accommodation options have guaranteed WiFi.

Where are the host families located?

All of our host families are located in the best neighborhoods in the city and are never more than 40 minutes away from Expanish, with many much closer. Buenos Aires is a large city, so it is common that students take public transportation (subway or bus) to get to school every day, just like the locals do.

Can I live in a place where I can walk to and from the school?

The best neighborhoods to live (Recoleta, Palermo, Belgrano, etc) are not within a reasonable walking distance to the center (where the school is located). These areas have the best nightlife, beautiful parks, and exceptional restaurants. This is where the majority live (students, visitors, families). If your priority is commuting by foot, please make that known when you register. Although we cannot guarantee it, we always take into account the preferences of students when matching host families and students.

Can I have my host’s email address?

As hosts do not frequently check their email, we prefer that students contact us directly if they have questions about the host family’s home or shared apartment. If you want to say “hello” your host, we can give you their telephone number so you can contact them.

Student Residence

The Student Residence will pair you with someone of the same sex, while taking into account your nationality, interests, and travel dates.

The Student Residence is located in San Telmo, 15 blocks away from Expanish. You can walk but there are many options for public transportation also.

How many students are there in the residence?

There are 41 rooms in 5 floors that usually receive around 50-70 Argentine students and foreign travellers. Expanish usually accommodates between 4 and 10 student in the residence at the same time.

General

Which is the most popular accommodation option?

The Homestay is Expanish’s most popular student accommodation option due to the Spanish immersion experience.

When will I get more information about the housing option I chose?

You will receive information about your host, location and amenities (depending on the option chosen) two weeks before your first day at Expanish.

Can I change the accommodation option that I chose?

Your satisfaction is important to us, so if something does not meet our high quality standards or the Expanish guarantee, then students can ask the Housing Director to change rooms within the same accommodation type, such as Homestay to another Homestay. However, students cannot change from a Homestay to the Student Residence.
