Student Life

Student Housing: On campus housing is guaranteed for all incoming exchange students. There are two different housing options that are recommended for exchange. The residence halls and the Hybrid Option at Jardine. In the residents halls, most students will share a room, there are common restroom areas and students will have access to a shared kitchen for their floor. In this option, students are required to have a meal plan. The Hybrid Option at Jardine is more of an apartment style set up where students have their own rooms and share a living room, kitcken and bathroom with 2-3 other students. Meal plans are optional for students living in the Hybrid Option.
