PUC-Rio does not provide dormitory facilities on campus but offers an enriched opportunity for students to experience the Brazilian way of life by placing them in a home-stay program. International students are placed in home-stays located in the south zone of the city, the same as the university. Most families live near the university, within 30- 40 minutes distance from campus by city bus.
