Location

The campus sits at the foothills of the Andes outside of metropolitan Santiago. As the largest city in Chile, Santiago acts as a cultural and political hub.

“It's a wonderful place for strolling, and each neighborhood has its unique flavor and tone. Head out for the day to take in the museums, grand architecture and pedestrian malls of the Centro, before an afternoon picnic in one of the gorgeous hillside parks that punctuate the city's landscape. Nightlife takes flight in the sidewalk eateries, cafes and beer halls of Barrios Brasil, Lastarria and Bellavista, while as you head east to well-heeled neighborhoods like Providencia and Las Condes, you'll find tiny restaurants and world-class hotels.” – Mark Johanson
