ISA Housing provides the opportunity for students to experience aspects of the Chinese lifestyle that are inaccessible to the average visitor of Shanghai. Students will have the advantage of living either on the East China Normal University campus or in the apartment, which is closed located to the campus and conveniently near public transit routes accessible to all parts of the city. The experience of living in another culture will be both educational and rewarding so long as you stay open-minded and reasonable at all times. There are differences in culture and lifestyle between life in China and the U.S. Remember: the key to a positive experience is flexibility. With this in mind, you can have an amazing stay in Shanghai!
Please note: All housing is subject to availibility.
Participants will stay in any of the three East China Normal University's dormitory for international students. ISA students will be roomed with fellow ISA students in double occupancy rooms which include an internet connection, air conditioning, bedding, and cleaning service for public area. The dorm is located in the center of campus. Students may or may not have a private bathroom depending on availability. If not, the public bathroom and shower room are located on each floor. Kitchen and a refrigerator are shared and located on each floor. Laundry facilities are located in the building and can be used at an additional cost. All dorms are same-sex, non-smoking environments.
