ISA housing provides the opportunity for students to experience aspects of the Jordanian lifestyle that are inaccessible to the average visitor to Jordan. All ISA housing options are either within walking distance or conveniently located to public transit routes. Travel to the various university buildings from ISA housing generally takes about 45 minutes depending on housing and class locations. For more information on transportation in Amman, click here.
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 Jordan and the U.S. Remember: the key to a positive experience is flexibility. With this in mind, you can become a true Ammani.
A $400 refundable security deposit will be charged to students living in ISA arranged housing. ISA may retain some, or all, of this deposit in the case of damage to property, or if utility usage exceeds the allotted monthly amount. This policy will no longer be in effect beginning Spring 2015.
