ISA housing provides the opportunity for students to experience aspects of the Moroccan lifestyle that are inaccessible to the average visitor to Morocco. All ISA housing options are either within walking distance or conveniently located to public transit routes. Taxis are also an affordable transportation alternative. Travel times to the various university buildings generally range between 15 and 45 minutes depending on housing and class locations. For more information on transportation in Meknes, 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 Morocco and the U.S. Remember: the key to a positive experience is flexibility. With this in mind, you can become a true Meknesi!
You will be provided with three meals a day (except on Sundays and ISA excursion days) and the services of a housekeeper. Vegan and vegetarian diets can be accommodated. Students wanting additional snacks and/or food are responsible for purchasing these goods from local markets, grocery stores or restaurants.
A $400 refundable security deposit will be charged to students living inISA 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 Fall 2014.
