accommodations will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis. Housing
will be offered by the program at the Edificio Jucati, a budget hotel. The
Edifício Jucati has 55 large apartments (about 45m2 or 485 ft2). Each
apartment has two bedrooms (although one is a walkthrough), a bathroom and a
basic kitchen. The apartments, when shared, are semi-private (meaning, for example,
that where two students share an apartment, there is a front room and a back
room and the back room is accessed only by walking through the front room.)
All apartments have refrigerator, stove, telephone, ceiling fan and air
conditioners. Internet use is included in the housing cost.
Although the apartments
are all the same, students have the choice of the number of people to share
with. For students seeking a single apartment, the price will be $1400 for the three
and a half week session. For students seeking a single room, the price will be

wishing more luxurious accommodations may request that the program try and
match them with other students who also wish to share higher quality
accommodations in the Ipanema neighborhood. As a general rule, two bedroom
apartments in Ipanema will cost between R$9,500.00-R$13,000 (Brazilian reales –
about $2,500.00-$3,500.00 US), for a one-month minimum stay. Although any such
apartments will be reserved with brokers known and used by the Program Director
in the past, payment and all responsibility relating to occupancy will be that
of the students. In addition, of course, students may research and identify
apartments on their own.

disabilities, the residence has a ground floor with rooms and therefore can be
accessed by persons with disabilities.
Please Note: Students may reserve their own housing in Rio,
after acceptance of the terms of the waiver, included on the Summer Abroad
Application and agreed to by submitting a "Will Not Require Housing"
request. Housing in Rio, however, is becoming very expensive because of the
increase in tourism.
The FGV and the Federal
Judicial College, where classes will be held, have wheelchair access.
Unfortunately, much of Rio does not have wheelchair access, and as the streets
and sidewalks can often be jagged and bumpy, wheelchair users will need
assistance to get to the FGV and the Federal Judicial College from the Metrô.
