You will stay in a prearranged homestay to assist with your Spanish language development and help you adapt to life in Mexico. UCEAP’s program coordinator has years of experience placing students in ideal spaces and will work to match you in a setting that fits your needs and preferences.


Most homestays are in the borough of Coyoacán, one of the oldest in Mexico City. The area is filled with cobblestone streets, many historic colonial plazas, and green parks. Relatively peaceful during the week, the center of Coyoacán becomes crowded and festive on weekends and holidays. Homestays can house multiple students so you may be living with other UC students.
