Advice on Accommodation & Living Costs in Brazil.
Accommodation and living costs
Universities in Brazil don’t normally offer accommodation to their students, so unlike other countries, most students live in private accommodation.
It’s worth contacting your chosen university’s international office in advance to see if they can provide you with advice on where to stay.
It might be worth booking into a hostel for the first month or so of your studies, as it is much easier to find accommodation once you are in the country.
Many universities will also help their students to organise homestays, where students live with a host family.
Brazil has a relatively high cost of living compared to other South American countries, but as with every country, the higher the standard of living you want, the more you will pay.
Eating out, drinks and public transport are all more expensive than other South American countries.
