Living at the AMAUTA Student Residence in Cusco.

The AMAUTA Student residence, located right in the heart of Cusco city, at a stones throw from the Plaza de Armas, is a great place to live and to explore the city.  The Residence is located within the same building as the Spanish school. Could you possibly be closer to the location of your Spanish classes in Cusco?  The time you safe traveling back and forward to your Spanish classes can be used to explore Cusco.

In the students residence,  you find single and shared rooms, most of them with shared bathroom facilities.  There is a common room, a sunny courtyard, free WIFI and a balcony.


For the students living in the residence, there are two meals included without any additional charge. 

in the mornings, there is a daily continental breakfast (coffee, tea, bread, mermelade, butter) with different extras such as fresh fruit juice, eggs, yogur, panqueques, cheese and so on. Around lunch time, our chef serves a home cooked warm meal. Our menu combines lovely dishes and ingredients of the famous Peruvian cuisine, combined with vegetarian dishes and international cuisine.  There is a daily vegetarian option. Our students in Peru and volunteers in Cusco enjoy living together and sharing their experiences in Peru in their rooms, the common room and the sunny spacious courtyard.

Nice atmosphere

Last but not least, there is a great atmosphere here! The Spanish students and volunteers in Cusco enjoy living together. It’s great to share all the new experiences with your new friends. Many great tours in Cusco or trekkings to Machu Picchu are planned here, such as the Inca Jungle Trek, or the Salkantay Trek.

Peruvian host families

The AMAUTA residence was originally opened upon request of the many students that confirm living at our residence is their preferred option. This doesn’t mean that our Peruvian host family option is not booked by many other Spanish students – a great way to practice your Spanish and feel part of a Peruvian family, learning about Peruvian culture and daily life.

    I’m a French student in La Rochelle, and I’ll do an internship in Cusco for 6 months.
    I’ve been looking for a place to rent but I have to admit, I struggle finding a good place.
    Can you give me more information about the AMAUTA Residence, and tell me if I can candidate to take part of it as a roomate.
    I’ll be coming to Cusco on April 8th, and I would stay for 6 months.

    Thank you for your answer.
