Location & Facilities

Live and study in a region that’s served as the cultural crossroads for the people of Asia, Africa, and Europe for thousands of years. Bordered by Iraq, Israel, Palestine, Saudi Arabia, and Syria—and maintaining relations with all—Jordan continues to play a significant diplomatic role in the Middle East.

You’ll live in Amman, Jordan’s capital and a bustling city of more than four million people. Originally built on seven hills, Amman is no longer the quaint desert town it once was at the end of World War II. This vibrant urban center is a now a hub for international investment, but it also faces regional struggles like the refugee crisis and water scarcity.

Exploring Jordan

No matter your personal interests, there will always be something for you to do in Amman. Whether it’s exploring the live music scene, browsing goods in local shops, sampling Arabic coffee, or learning about daily Islamic practices, you’ll explore Jordan’s culture in every way possible. You’ll also have the chance to see other famous sites in Jordan, such as the ancient city of Petra, the Roman ruins in Jerash, and the Dead Sea.

Over the course of the semester, you will grow to understand Jordan as an ancient nation with rich traditions as well as a crucial contributor to today’s global community.
