For students looking for accommodation
USP has no accommodation or owns houses within or outside the campus of São Paulo.
The service Info Housing doesn’t reserve spaces or look for options for exchange students. The search for accommodation must be carried out by the interested person in accordance to his/her economic conditions and interests.
For the arrival immediate accommodation, USP International Office can appoint hostels specialized in receiving exchange students. The request for such information must be made via email email@example.com.
We also advise students that housing for the exchange period requires the signature of a contract. It is the right of everyone, including the exchange student, to protect himself/herself even from a simple rent. This contract is made in written confirming and guaranteeing all the rights and obligations of the tenant and the landlord’s.
The rent rates of a room or accommodation can greatly vary, depending on location and features offered by the house ant the neighborhood. According to information obtained from the Brazilian consulates abroad, it is estimated that the monthly living cost is around 900 USD presently (march/13).
