The Global Health Peru Program at UPCH does not provide student housing options, however, if requested we can help facilitate students search for housing. Due to the complex nature of Lima’s public transportation and safety concerns, Global Health Peru Program recommends students to search for housing in the following areas:
- Miraflores: Miraflores is the main tourist and commercial district in Lima. It contains multiple shopping areas, parks, beaches and entertainment options. It is both safe and convenient. Many expatriate and foreign students are located in this area and it should not be difficult to find a shared apartment or homestay with a Peruvian family. One can expect to pay between $300 – 400 USD/month for a room in Miraflores. We advise all students to seek out housing options here.
- San Isidro and Barranco: Both of these districts are located near Miraflores and are also viable options.
