Due to COVID 19 pandemic we recomend students to book flexible flight rates.
ACCOMMODATION ON CAMPUS OR IN THE CITY
Students can choose between 2 options:
a) Private room in the city (Recommended).
b) On campus (15-20 min outside the city).
The accommodation in the city is arranged by the school which holds agreements with residency-condo. Student will stay in their private room with toilet (1 person only). Some students prefer to to stay in the city where they can enjoy local activities, restaurants, museums, co-working spaces, public libraries, nightlife, etc. and live under an urban lifestyle.
The accommodation on-campus will allow the students to stay in a shared room (most rooms are for 3-4 people) with all services at the Oon Valley Campus 20 min away from the city and in the middle of a great natural and tropical park. This option is included in the tuition fees for regular and special fees enrolled students. It is a great choice if you are the kind of person who likes to share a room, live with others, make new friends and enjoy nature and outdoor activities. All students who wish to stay in shared rooms are asked to fill a questionnaire prior departure which states a few questions in order to help us to allocate roomates. Questions to be answered are bedtime, cleanliness, room organization, nationality and similar. Roomates are allocated by the school, not by the student. Later changes of roommate or room location are possible altough they might incur in extra fees paid by the student.
Important: In case the programme includes extra professional activities 4-6 weeks between semesters in Bangkok. The accommodation in Bangkok is not included and must be paId by the student. Still the school has arranged an affordable stay for all students in a residency. Price is offered to the student at cost, still students can rent their own places through Airbnb or similar webs if they wish. All details are given in the induction days.
