Bienvenidos a casa

Live and learn through interaction

Interaction with those around us is key to learning. So, when it comes to housing, it's good to have options. From living among international peers in Casa CONOCE, to a full-immersion experience with a local host family, you choose your home in Guanajuato. Centrally located, all housing options are walking distance from the city's many historic landmarks including Plaza de la Paz, the Universidad de Guanajuato, Mercado Hidalgo and more.

Choose your housing

We offer two housing options in Guanajuato to best serve your needs. Learn more below.


Available to students studying at the Universidad de Guanajuato or one of Guanajuato's many language schools, Casa CONOCE offers an ideal cross-cultural living experience in the historic city center, a mere 3-minute walk from the university. The full-service, colonial-era guest house provides modern comforts and security in an unmatched location. Prepare meals alongside your international peers, relax on the patio terrace and enjoy monthly events hosted by the CONOCE staff. It's all part of living at Casa CONOCE.

If you are in pursuit of a full-immersion experience to complement your coursework and wish to make a connection with those who call Guanajuato home, a homestay is the most authentic way of gaining insight into the Mexican culture while improving language skills. Enjoy home-cooked meals, enriching conversations and the personal attention only a family can provide. Learn firsthand why Mexicans are considered among the warmest, most hospitable people in the world.
