International students can live in a student dormitory or have the university arrange an apartment or room in which to stay.
Dorms consist of eight rooms per floor, with 2-3 people per room. Each floor also has one kitchen and two toilets, and the basement has a shower. Students cannot select their own rooms. We encourage students to apply early, as the number of rooms are limited. Some students may not be comfortable with dorm rules, as they are often considered strict.
Apartment rent varies depending on the location, size and condition. Apartments offered for rent generally include furniture and basic household appliances, including a refrigerator, television and telephone. Average prices start at $295.00 USD for a one-room apartment, while two-room apartments average at $450 USD. Utilities are not included in rent.
This is the best option for those looking to improve language proficiency.
“I recommend every student to stay in the dorm for at least the first semester of studies until they are comfortable being in the city and know their way around, it also eliminates the stress of looking for a place in the first week upon arrival. ”
