The ISA office is conveniently located in the heart of downtown Xalapa, around the corner from the Escuela para Estudiantes Extranjeros on the fith floor of Edificio Argentina, and has a breathtaking view of the city and surrounding mountains. It is no more than a 5-10 minute walk from most of Xalapa’s main attractions, cafés and student hangouts, photocopy shops, public transportation and shopping.
ISA students are encouraged to use the office (general office hours are 11:00am to 3:00pm and 4pm to 7:00pm Monday through Friday) to check e-mail, receive tutoring, obtain travel advice and information on cultural activities, or to practice speaking Spanish with the ISA staff.
