Student accommodation in China, information, our advice:

  • by

Students joining a university course in China must once be admitted to the university of their choice, begin the process to obtain student accommodation there. While universities often reserve part of university accommodation for international students, other possibilities exist, it’s up to you to choose what suits you best!

Be careful, however, to live outside the student campus, you must first request permission from your university and not take this right as a matter of principle.

University accommodation on campus at Chinese universities:

University accommodation in universities in China is today of an excellent standard, and has all the necessary facilities, kitchen, bathroom, single rooms, double rooms, internet access included or inexpensive … You can often express your preferences for the nationality of the roommates with whom you share the common rooms.

Prices vary between 90 euros to 500 euros per month depending on the university, the city, and the options are chosen, so it is difficult to make an average. It should be noted that the big cities of China offer more or less similar prices to the big European cities, at least for accommodation.

To obtain accommodation through the university, you will need to contact the university as soon as you receive the admission letter in order to guarantee you a place, as demand often exceeds supply.

The university also offers hotels or residences in the partnership which accommodate students at advantageous prices and offer an interesting alternative for students who do not want to live in student residences, or who have taken the steps to obtain university accommodation too late.

Private and off-campus student accommodation in China:

It is quite possible for an international student to live off-campus. Finding accommodation is rather easy, although certain criteria must be respected, such as proximity to the university, minimal facilities, and internet access.

Prices vary enormously from neighborhood to neighborhood, and city to city, so it’s hard to get an average. For the city of Beijing for example, it will cost you 1500 RMB and 3000 RMB per month, that is to say between 175 euros and 350 euros per month.
