Daily Life

  • HOUSING

    Campus Residence Hall: Most participants will stay in the Campus Residence Hall with a CIEE student, a five-story facility located on the East China Normal University (ECNU) campus that has a lobby with 24-hour security and laundry facilities. There is a kitchen and bathrooms on each floor. This option pairs CIEE students with other CIEE students. Students can also opt for a Chinese roommate and stay in the ECNU Campus Residence Halls. Chinese roommates are required to speak only Chinese, so this option is recommended for students who wish to live in a more intensive Chinese-language environment while remaining nearby other program participants.

  • MEALS

    Meals are not included in this housing option and are the responsibility of the student. They are available in the campus cafeterias at a moderate price.
