Community living is central to the UWC movement - learning to live with peers from around the world with different backgrounds and points of view is a unique way to gain insight into other cultures and perspectives. The Residential Life program at UWC Costa Rica uses an experiential learning approach to empower students as agents of change. Students learn and live together, creating a community built on diversity.
Eight Day Residence Coordinators and two Night Coordinators support the students' daily lives at UWC Costa Rica, along with seven other residential staff. The team is integrated by various professionals who support the students in living with balance and paying attention to their physical and mental well-being. The team is integrated by licensed psychologists, nurses, paramedics, physical trainers, educators, and a doctor, among others, so our students are supported in an integral manner that ensures they are both safe and informed about how to lead healthy, balanced lifestyles. Wellness activities, such as outings, camps, excursions, movie nights, dinners, meditations, and exercise activities, are regularly organized to ensure students feel supported and guided in their academic and social journey with us.
