You have the option of living in a prearranged apartment near the university or arranging your own housing in Bangkok. If you wish to find your own housing, you can stay in one of two accommodation options until you find housing for the rest of your stay in Thailand. Temporary housing is organized for you based on your answers to a questionnaire and the options are subject to availability. Many students find a roommate or roommates during orientation.


The university provides a list of resources to help you find the best place to live. There are a wide variety of apartments suitable for students in Bangkok. Many students share an apartment with a roommate, usually another exchange student. Most apartments do not include a kitchen. Larger, more modern apartment complexes have amenities like gyms, pools, computer labs, and security guards. Some have river views.
