Xavier University School of Medicine at Aruba is located in the heart of Oranjestad, the capital of Aruba. The campus is right in downtown, walking distance from all basic amenities and central bus station.
Most of the Governmental building, shopping malls, and the fast food chains are in walking distance of the campus. One of the biggest advantages is its proximity to the central bus station, which allows access to all parts of the island. The life style is quite similar to North America with all familiar fast-food restaurants and shopping outlets.
