Regarding the accommodation in Ribeirão Preto, USP doesn't offer student accommodation in campus.  Accommodations that exist on campus are dedicated exclusively to Brazilian students who can not afford housing, offered by the university to them.

About 80% of USP Ribeirão Preto students are not from the city of Ribeirão Preto. So they have two options when they start the studies in the city: either the university housing mentioned above, or live in "Republicas". This means the students themselves join in small groups, rent houses, buy furniture, pay the monthly bills and so.
It is a very interesting option because students learn to share costs, should take care of the house themselves. It is a model inspired by the fraternities.


Some Republicas have a vacant room (individual or shared). When this occurs, Republicas tell us, make a register with us and we disclose this opportunity to foreign students before they arrive. Thus the international students contact the Republicas and negotiate the opportunity available.


This is our housing program: International students have the opportunity to live in the republics of Brazilians, which facilitates the integration between them, learning Portuguese, the experience at USP and in Ribeirão Preto.


This is a program that our Brazilian students offer a place at their house/apartment to welcome an exchange student. Most of the exchange students stay in those "Repúblicas". We will contact the international students very soon informing the list of the accommodation options. Your Tutor (Buddy) will be glad to help you to find your housing.
