The City

Often called the “Paris of Latin America,” Buenos Aires is a beautiful and dynamic city where Latin American and European influences merge in a unique blend of architecture, music, literature, dance, and cuisine.  Walking through the streets of Buenos Aires immediately gives you a sense of Argentina’s fascinating political and social history and its diverse cultural life. San Telmo’s colorful architecture, La Boca’s famous tango dancers, and Palermo’s beautiful parks are just a few of the interesting “barrios” in Buenos Aires. Though each street corner has its own intimacy, with its local shops and people, the city seems endless when it comes to its museums, bars and restaurants, clubs, theaters, galleries, and concerts. The diverse art and music scenes are flourishing.  Yet even in this huge city, the friendliness of the Argentines provides students with many opportunities to practice and improve their Spanish.


Trinity in Buenos Aires is run in association with IFSA-Butler, an educational organization that provides students with student support services for the duration of their time in Argentina.  The IFSA-Butler staff in Buenos Aires work together with the Trinity Academic Director and arrange student housing, coordinate arrival and orientation arrangements, manage university enrollments and provide additional assistance as needed throughout the semester.
