about_guadalajaraGuadalajara has preserved an important cultural heritage, yet it is a modern productive metropolis with numerous special events and activities, such as the Folklore and Cultural October Fest, the International Book Fair (FIL), and the International Mariachi Festival, just to name a few.
Because of its friendly people, climate, safe environment and natural and architectonical beauty, Guadalajara and the surrounding areas are very appealing for international visitors, as well as a renowned retirement destination in Mexico. Puerto Vallarta (on the Pacific coast), Chapala (the largest lake in Mexico), the town of Tequila (birthplace of tequila), Guanajuato (a lovely colonial city), and many other historic and cultural venues are all very easy to reach from Guadalajara.

Students that go on exchange or internship and want to rent out their room can use the housing platformwww.HousingAnywhere.com. You can earn some extra money for your exchange by renting out your room, and you will help UAG University with increasing the supply of short-stay housing for the incoming exchange students.

Also if you live with your parents, you can use this platform to rent out your room as a “home stay”: most parents like to host an international student for 1 semester; ask them first of course before doing it!

www.HousingAnywhere.com is free to use and it operates on a student-to-student basis.

Feel free to use this webpage as well to rent out your room during summer (to students doing a summer course / summer internship in our city).
