Residencial 10 was founded on 2013 by Alejandro Rueda Gómez and Juan Sebastián Pescador Gómez, two graduates of the University of Los Andes, who after making their own exchange semester, eventually noticed that the accomodations offers for students were scarce, obsolete, rigid and did not count with the best conditions, a context that gave birth to a contemporary and different type of accommodation, one that could satisfy the needs of the student and foreign community. At the moment the company completes 5 years’ operating, period of time on which we have received more than 300 students coming from diverse parts of Europe, Oceania, Africa and Latin America.
At R10 we have a committed and trained staff able to attend the needs of our residents, always willing to collaborate at any time. Beyond a legal agreement, our employees want that each student and resident has the necessary support to have the best stay.
On the years of operation, we feel grateful of being able to contribute on the generation of several gratifying life experiences, and being the link and meeting point between big friendships and strong bonds that have been established through the world in our residences.
Residencial 10 is a company aimed at providing student accommodation for nationals and foreigners (tourists and short stays on specific dates). More than a place to live, we thrive to generate a global community and a meeting point for all the students and residents, generating interactions that contribute to life experiences and a community learning, complementary to the ones lived at the classroom or other places.
Our mission is:
Go beyond offering accommodation, create a home for students and residents where they have an adequate environment to realize their studies and offers an educative additional experience that helps them become mature and independent professionals via the interactions with their companions and community.
All of our accommodations in general have the same conditions. Rooms and apartments completely furnished, equipped kitchens, common areas, TV zones, study and work areas, meeting places, ping pong table, terrace, patio and garden depending on each location, as well as located on the main cultural and interest center of the city, La Candelaria neighborhood in downtown Bogotá.
