Students complete a housing form to convey their preferences to the staff abroad, who will place them accordingly. The Middlebury School in Uruguay staff will send the host families’ contact information 1-2 weeks before the orientation starts.

Students should understand that while every effort will be made to accommodate their requests, it is not always possible to grant everyone’s first choice. We encourage students to keep an open mind in terms of their housing, as with all other aspects of the experience, and make an effort to integrate into their lifestyle.
