Housing

Students will live in residence halls with a shared kitchenette, bathroom and washer/dryer. The residence hall units are suite style: two persons to a bedroom with four bedrooms sharing a common area. On-campus housing is only available for students under the age of 25. Students who are over the age of 25 will be provided with alternative housing options.

Meals are not included with the on-campus housing. There is a student canteen (cafeteria) very close to the location of the residence halls. Students will be living primarily with Mexican roommates.

In the past, homestays have been an option for students at an additional cost. Homestays are limited and are not guaranteed.

UDLAP will provide students with specific move-in and move-out dates. Students wishing to arrive early or extend will be responsible for securing their own housing during the times not covered by the UDLAP housing dates.
