We recommend that students live on campus. International students live in single rooms with a private western style bathroom.Rooms are 16 square meters with a balcony, bed, desk, wardrobe, hot water and a/c (no heater). The first floor of the dormitory has a laundry room with washing machines and dryers. You can visit our campus tour to discover our campus and dorm rooms.
You may live off campus if you choose. The school does not provide accommodation outside the campus, and you will ultimately be responsible for negotiating your own housing. However, we can advise you and recommend areas in Shenzhen. Off campus housing can range around 4,000 RMB per month depending on the size and location.
The housing fee for is 12,000 RMB/year (not including utilities) for a single room. A double room costs 6,000 RMB/year (not including utilities). Accommodation must be paid in full before checking in to the Campus Service Center (next to the dormitory). If you are unable to pay for your accommodation upon arrival, you will be allowed to share a 4-persons room for up to one week (for instance, if you are waiting for a bank transfer). The dormitory will only open to new students on the dorm check-in days before orientation begins.
Utilities are paid by pre-paid electricity and water cards that can be charged in the Campus Service Center. Depending on your personal habits, utilities are typically 200 RMB per month. Some students may find that they run through money more quickly due to extensive air conditioning use and long hot showers.
The international students’ apartments are located in Buildings 1 and 5. On your arrival, you must check in at the Campus Service Center (Building K).
