Off-campus housing
Exchange students, through real estate agents, can easily look for an off-campus apartment near the North and South Gate of Zhuhai Campus, where it is only 15 to 20 minutes’ walk to Teaching Building. Both single and shared furnished apartments are available for students’ choices. The rent is approximately RMB2500-3000 per month (electricity, water are excluded, which should be paid according to monthly actual consumption) for a 2-3 bedroom apartment. If it is needed, OIA will assist exchange students on looking for a comfortable apartment.
