I want to live in Residential Colleges

The admission process by Internet only applies to new Residential College students.

First Step

  • If you already started your admission process at Universidad de las Américas Puebla and have your six-digit student number, you must send an e-mail to School Services informes.admisiones@udlap.mx to request your code and PIN number.

  • If you have not yet started your process at Universidad de las Américas Puebla, please go to: http://inscripciones.udlap.mx/registroexamenadmision/ where you will be given your code and PIN number.

  • Once you have your code and PIN number you may enter the link http://inscripciones.udlap.mx/SolicitudColegioProspecto and fill out your Residential College application form.

  • We will confirm reception of completely filled out forms the following working day, via email.

  • It is important to point out that the reservation of the type of room you request is subject to availability so, once you have received confirmation, you must complete the second and third steps at the same time in less than 15 days, or the reservation of the room you want will not be guaranteed.

  • Do not make any payments before receiving confirmation of availability from the reservations area of the Residential Colleges.

Second Step

  • In the confirmation email you receive upon completing your application form, we will send you the admission and cancellation terms.

  • You must print out this document, sign in blue ink in the margin of each page, fill out the information requested on page 5, and sign your full name at the end of the document.

  • If you are a minor, your guardian must also sign and annex a copy of his/her official identification.

  • Once the document is duly signed, scan all pages and send them to the following email: colegios.universitarios@udlap.mx

  • Do not make any payments until the Reservations Office confirms availability at the College.

Third Step

  • Pay the $3,970.00  one-time only admission fee for Colleges (non-refundable) at the following banks:

    Bancomer: 3249-5
    Banamex: Branch 870 account 5164-2
    HSBC: Agreement RAP 8132
    Banorte: Business Payment Concentration 94742
    Santander: Reference Payment Agreement 3560
    Bancomer: Account 0443569470 CLABE 012650004435694700 Currency:(pesos)
    In the name of: Fundación Universidad de las Américas, Puebla / student name
    Reference: 00+ID (student number)+DV (check digit)

  • The $3,970.00 payment IS A NON-REFUNDABLE FEE

  • It is very important that you send your proof of payment to colegios.universitarios@udlap.mx, otherwise we will not be able to verify that the payment has been made and we will be unable to reserve your room.

Once the three steps are complete, we will send you an email to confirm your reservation, and we will give you the date in which we will inform you of your room number.
