To fully immerse themselves in the rich Argentinean culture, students will reside with host families. Most accommodations include a single room with breakfast and dinner provided each day. Students are expected to dine with the host family each evening, unless prior arrangements have been made. Lunch will be provided via meal vouchers for the university cafeteria. There are no exceptions to the home stay arrangement as it is an integral part of the cultural component of the program.
UC Davis reserves the right to change the accommodation location. Should this be necessary, we will arrange comparable lodging. Please note that elevators, air conditioners and other modern conveniences may not be available in all locations.

However, the environments and risks associated with living in these locations are substantially different than those found during a regular course of study at UC Davis.
