Internship Accommodation

At Red Tree Study, we want our interns to feel at home in Colombia as much as possible and we are very excited to extend our partnership with Universidad de los Andes by housing all of our participants at the fantastic Torre Séneca, the university’s modern accommodation whose green and blue towers can be spotted from anywhere in the city center. Each intern will have a private room situated within a four-person suite complete with a shared common space, cooking area, and an impressive city view.

They will have access to all of the center’s facilities which include study rooms, recreation spaces with ping pong tables and vending machines, relaxation rooms equipped with TVs for movie watching and videogames, and a renovated gym with treadmills, ellipticals, TRX, and weight machines. The housing units make up the greater ‘City U’ Center which includes a variety of cafes and restaurants (including vegetarian options) along with a grocery store, pharmacy, and ATM- really anything that a student could possibly need.

We can also arrange accommodation in a private apartment, student house or hostel if you prefer. Please get in touch to find out about the options and costs involved.

Transport

In spite of its famous traffic jams, Bogota is an easy city to navigate and we’ll make sure that you’re staying within easy reach of your workplace during your Internship program.

You may be working outside of the office on set or on location during your Internship, but the employer will provide any necessary transport for this and there will be no extra costs involved.

The city’s Transmileno network is cheap and safe, if a bit crowded at times! It runs throughout the city and there are direct routes between the historic Candelaria and the Zona Rosa in the north. Taxis are convenient and relatively affordable, and with the arrival of apps such as Tappsi and EasyTaxi which allow you to book a driver and track your journey, they are secure as well.

Cycling is really popular in Colombia, and many of the main roads in Bogota have designated bike routes. And the ever-popular ciclovia, when much of the city is closed to cars each Sunday morning, is a great way to travel around the city.

Air travel is cheap, easy and reliable in Colombia and Avianca and VivaColombia run a full schedule of domestic flights throughout the country each day. This means that it’s really easy for you to explore the country at weekends – in Bogota you’re just over an hour away from the Caribbean and the Amazon!
