Housing Housing

Since we do not offer accommodation on campus, the International Exchange Department has a list of families who offer excellent room and board to UAG international students. If you make a reservation, the family will secure the room for you for the term. There are definite advantages in living with families because students can practice their Spanish, learn more about Mexican culture, and experience a different way of life.
