LodgingOLSA has it covered! 

We are proud to work with several local apartment providers for live-alone lodging.  These apartments are all located within walking distance of OLSA International.

In addition to our private providers, we also work with VICO, which is known throughout Medellin as the best site to find rooms for rent in shared houses. Check out their site and get $15 USD off your first month’s rent!

If you are planning to be here for less than a month, perhaps one of our affiliate hostels would be best! Take a look at The Wandering Paisa. All are great places to stay with friendly staff.

For additional contacts for hostels and private providers, you are welcome to contact the school!

OLSA International does not participate in family placement due to the high risk involved to both the student and to the family participating.  Although we really feel this is an excellent option to learn culture and the real-life day-to-day living of a Colombian family, there are too many variables to consider.  If this is an option you are interested in, you are welcome to talk with the director for local agencies that specialize in student placement.
