Arrival Information:

Most international flights arrive at the Ezeiza International Airport (Ministro Pistarini) while domestic flights arrive at Aeroparque. Currency can be exchanged in the airport at Banco Nacion. Teller machines are available and work with most major credit cards. Public phones are either coin- or card-operated. Cards are available at the airport. You can also dial #19 to make a collect call. A bus company (Manuel Tienda Leon) offers transportation to downtown Buenos Aires at $ar 50. The ride takes about 40 minutes. The ticket stand at Manuel Tienda Leon company is the first stand after you exit customs. There is also a public transportation bus that serves downtown Buenos Aires at a cheaper rate, but we do not recommend it if you carry a significant amount of luggage. If you do take this bus, we recommend the differential service (signaled by a D behind the windshield). Taxi fares from the airport are about $ar 150-200.


The University Campus (Ciudad Universitaria) is served by bus lines 28, 33, 37, 42, 45, 107, and 160. Some buses end their route before reaching the university campus. Only those with the special sign "Ciudad Universitaria" behind the windshield serve the school site. You should get off the bus at the first stop inside campus. All bus routes end at their third stop inside campus. The bus fare ($ar 1.25) must be paid onboard using coin-operated ticket machines. You do not need to pay the exact fare, but you must pay with coins (the driver will not provide change).
