Living on campus is an ideal way to transition to university life. The residence hall that hosts international students and local students studying foreign languages is located just a short 5 to 10-minute walk from main university buildings. Residents spend time studying alone or in groups, or socializing with other students. Each resident receives a dormitory ID card.

We offer fully-furnished double and triple rooms with shared common areas organized sections; each section hosts ten students sharing four rooms, including two double rooms and three triple rooms. Each room comes with beds, a wardrobe, study desks, chairs, bedside tables, curtains, a fridge, and a wireless connection. Bed linen is changed every ten days.

Each floor has a study room and a lounge as well two kitchens equipped with electric ovens, a dining table, a cupboard, and a sink. Laundry room and international student center are located on the ground floor. Each residence hall has officially been designated as non-smoking, but each building has a smoking lounge. Outside the smoking lounge, smoking is not permitted.
