We strive to give international students the necessary skills to become integrated into UVM’s academic community, and Chilean culture through experiential learning. We aim to give students the necessary tools to learn and express themselves in Spanish, but also provide them with opportunities to put their abilities into practice in the real world.

One of the richest experiences a student can have while studying abroad is staying with a Chilean host family. Living with a Chilean host family will provide students with first hand experiences as to how Chileans typically live.
Our host families have been carefully chosen and selected by our housing coordinator to ensure a safe and caring environment.
Students fill out a housing questionnaire to learn more about their living styles, diets, and the type of interaction they would like to have with their host families. We use this information to best place them with a family who will fit their needs and personalities.
Students who wish to live on their own, or with a group of students, can request information from us on recommended neighborhoods, housing websites, and trusted residency houses to stay at in Viña del Mar.
The main objective is to build lasting relationships between local students and international students who study at UVM. This meets our objective to strengthen “Internationalization at Home,” which encourages multicultural learning values such as diversity and respect.About the International Club
