Program Location

universidad de montevideo 2With a population of 1.5 million, Montevideo is the capital and cultural center of Uruguay. Situated on the northern banks of Rio de la Plato, it combines Latin American character with a European atmosphere. Home to the mate drink, cowboys called gauchos, the world’s longest Carnival and condombe, a farm of Afro-Uruguayan music, Montevideo boasts a rich cultural tradition.

Montevideo is only a short drive from Colonia del Sacramento, a UNESCO World Heritage city, and Punta del Este, a renowned coastal resort. Buenos Aires, Santiago de Chile and Sao Paulo are easily accessible from Montevideo by plane or bus.

The Universidad de Montevideo does not provide on-campus housing. However the Office of International Affairs sends out a housing list before the beginning of every semester with multiple choices of living situations such as international residences, house stays and independent rooms to rent. It is strongly recommended to arrange your permanent housing in Montevideo once you have arrived. It is our suggestion that you book a hostel for the beginning of your stay so that you may search for appropriate housing during your first weeks here. 

Program Reviews:
Mallory Jessica Harris, Fall 2017 Participant
I spent the fall semester of my senior year on a UGA Exchange program in Montevideo, Uruguay. My days there began with my drinking a thermos' worth of mate tea and ended with communal dinners with my twenty roommates from all over the world. In between, there was plenty of time for long walks along the beach, Zumba classes, and visits to the nearest pastelerĂ­a for dulce de leche pastries. While gaining confidence in my Spanish-speaking abilities, I gained experience getting around a new city on my own and putting down roots during a longer stay.

Extremely safe city and very easy to get around (they have an extensive bus system in the city).

The school coordinated two weekend trips for international students to different cities. There are a lot of cool weekend trips only a couple hours away (Colonia, Punta del Este, Cabo Polonio). I'd definitely recommend trying to make it to Brazil, Chile, and Argentina as well.
