January in Peru Housing

Here are some general rules, tips, and expectations to help you become accustomed to your new home!

On the January in Peru program you will be staying at La Casa de Don Ignacio. This is a converted hotel that now operates as a student residencia and dorm. You will stay in a shared room with other international or Peruvian students. It’s a great place to meet people as most are college-aged students as well.

There are many common areas with wifi throughout the building. There is also a kitchen and cafeteria in which you will eat the included breakfast. Towels and linens are also included. Staff are always there during the day and a security guard is on duty at night or any other time the staff is gone.

La Casa de Don Ignacio is located very close to la Universidad San Ignacio de Loyola (USIL) and central downtown. Most students walk to class everyday!

We expect all students to follow both CISabroad and La Casa de Don Ignacio’s rules. CISabroad’s code of conduct can be found in the CISabroad Policy Handbook. Don Ignacio’s rules will be distributed when you arrive onsite and check in. If any rules are broken we will follow our behavior policy which could include dismissal from program.

Helpful tips for living with other people:

  • Respect your hosts and the other people that live in the building.
  • Remember that you are not on a college campus and not in your own home. Respect the property and get out of the “college campus” mentality.
  • Talk to your roommates if they do something that bothers you. Talking it through is the easiest way to solve a small problem before it gets bigger.
  • Talk to the Onsite Coordinator if a problem arises and you cannot work it out with your roommates.
