Grading comment
Well, despite the fact that most agreed with Elinor, Oso is right in this case. It is an institute of technology and they refer to the campus in Cancun.

Thanks to all!

staff?


Explanation:
Hold on! In Argentina, plantel is the staff. A plantel is composed by people, and campus refers to buildings, doesn't it?

In what context do you have plantel?

SEE EXPLANATION


Explanation:
I feel it important to point out that "Oso" would be correct IF this is about a university as the word "campus" pertains to universities or institutions for higher education. If it is NOT about university, then "campus" would not be the correct term to use.

Elinor does have a point too (for Argentina) because plantel CAN indeed be school staff...but it ALSO refers to educational establishments.

Hope this helps:-)
