USAC campus

The city campus of USAC provides students with countless opportunities for work and recreation — from sitting in a coffee shop with a laptop to internships at large companies. Guatemala City has a well developed entertainment infrastructure, but the rhythm of the big city can be distracting for some students. The university has a library, in the collection of which you will find not only textbooks and scientific works, but also works of the classics, modern literature and much more.
