USIL housing/homestay: If a student stays with a host family, he/she should respect rules, customs, curfew, etc. Every student has the right to ask for a change if necessary. If a student stays at USIL housing, he/she should respect rules such as: alcohol is not permitted inside the apartments, guests are welcome in the common areas but they cannot spend the night in the apartments. Please ask for the complete regulations from your homestay provider and/or USIL housing authority.

Do not take taxis by yourselves (if possible ask at front desk or your host family for a taxi company).
Have important USIL phone numbers with you at all times.
Report USIL staff if you are under health problems immediately. Use your health insurance card in clinics (public hospitals do not accept those cards). If the clinic does not accept your insurance card, pay for the service, get all the invoices for appointments or medication, and then contact your health insurance provider for reimbursement.
Transportation: Taxis in Cusco are pretty inexpensive. Avoid taking public transportation.
Money: ATM’s have Soles (S/.) and US Dollars ($). Most restaurants accept cash (Soles and Dollars) and credit cards; convenience stores, taxis, and small restaurants frequently accept only Soles.

Expressions such as buenos días, buenas tardes, buenas noches are always used. Saying hola with a greeting expression is also accepted. Lifting your eyebrows or not greeting at all is considered rude.
When saying good-bye, expressions such as hasta luego, buenas noches, are always used. The expression chao may be used among classmates. A handshake or a kiss is commonly used.
Customs: Peruvians are very friendly and respectful, so please make yourself aware of their customs and common courtesy (greetings, meetings, in class, language, etc.) when interacting with others.
