A Diretoria Adjunta de Relações Internacionais (DARI) tem como objetivo implementar e desenvolver a Internacionalização da Escola Politécnica. Propiciando experiências acadêmicas no Brasil e no exterior que acrescentem profissionalmente aos participantes e contribuam para o crescimento dos países envolvidos.


Escola Politécnica of Universidade Federal do Rio de Janeiro does not have a dormitory for foreign students, but for our international students we offer the possibility of living with a Brazilian family. We have an agreement with some families and they can stay there during the regular course. A private room with a Brazilian family costs around R$ 850,00/month. However, if the student arrives in Brazil and has no place to stay he/she can find lodging in hostels. Some of them are listed below.

Students interested in coming to Escola Politécnica of UFRJ should look for lodging in Catete, Flamengo, Laranjeiras, Copacabana, Ipanema, Leblon and Jardim Botanico. These places have a shuttle bus to UFRJ Campus.
