Given the various towns and cities you will live in during your time in China, housing will consist of a variety of different kinds of living spaces in each of these locations. From towering apartment complexes that are as high as 30+ floors to modest hotels and efficient hostels! Students will experience the necessity of comfortable, minimal living, which demonstrates the Chinese cultural value of living for the sake of community. Often, once students return home, they reconsider what are true household needs versus wants.

In order to make the most of your time in China, you are paired with a student who will be your roommate throughout the semester. Students can request to room with another student of their choice if it is reciprocated. While your housing location will change as you travel through China, your roommate will remain the same.
