The building consists of single, double & triple rooms. The rooms have their own bathrooms. Double & Triple rooms will have bunk beds and all rooms will have a wardrobe and dresser. Each room has a stove top & cube refrigerator. A freezer & microwave are available in the basement. The building also has an elevator and laundry facilities on site. Wireless Internet is provided.

Housing Refund Policy

All housing paid to the school is non-refundable after it has been paid regardless of whether the program in question has begun. By registering for the program you are committing yourself to the full rental costs for the school year. Upon withdrawal you will be liable for the remaining balance. There is only one exception to this policy. If a new student is able to fill the vacancy then the remaining balance due from when the new student moves in will not be charged.
