Students may choose to live at USIL’s residence hall, La Casa de Don Ignacio – Cusco, or at family homestay for a more culturally immersive experience.

The San Ignacio de Loyola University has as a decentralization strategy, with the aim of providing an education based on an innovative knowledge managed in our country. That is why, during the first months of 2010, we recovered and valued the pre-hispanic and colonial structures of a property located in the Historic Center of Cusco.

On April 15 of 2010, the Founder President of the Organization, Mr. Raúl Diez Canseco Terry, inaugurated the USIL Extension Center in Cusco. Since then, various academic programs have been offered, aimed at satisfying the needs of this city and the near regions.

The USIL Extension Center offers young entrepreneurs from all over the world the opportunity to study important courses, as well as to learn about the traditions and the historical legacy of the imperial city.
