Arrangements for accommodations in local homes are made by the director. Students are not permitted to share housing accommodations with other U.S. students. The estimated expense for accommodations can be found under fees.

Brazil Niteroi Housing


The homestay experience allows students to connect with a local Brazilian family.  Most homestay situations allow for students to have breakfast and dinner with the host family, and buy their lunch on campus or in town.  Students have their own room. Past students have enjoyed having a place that feels like home and being treated as a member of the family. Homestays are usually located a few minutes from campus. Most of the locations require the student to take a short bus ride to and from campus.

Shared Apartments

Students looking to stay with Brazilian students in a more independent living situation may prefer the shared apartment option. Students pay less in rent, as this option doesn’t include meals and students will need to provide their own bedding, kitchen items, fan, etc. Students will share a bathroom, cook for themselves, and have a more student-centric experience.
