Living Arrangements

You’ll make your home in Shanghai’s bustling metropolis in a residence hall for undergraduate international students at East China Normal University (ECNU).

All rooms are modern and air-conditioned. A laundry room is available for student use, and there are several kitchens throughout the residence hall if you want to cook some of your own meals.

Spending time with your roommate is a great chance to practice your Chinese language skills, learn about Chinese culture, and build a community at ECNU.

All ACM students live in double occupancy rooms with a Chinese roommate. Spending time with your roommate is a great chance to practice your Chinese language skills, learn about Chinese culture, and build a community at ECNU. Many local students will be just excited to get to know you as you are to get to know them!

A student cafeteria with a wide variety of authentic Chinese cuisine is just steps outside of your door. To get to your classes, you’ll walk no more than 15 minutes through the famously lush green grounds of ECNU’s Zhongbei campus. After classes, take a quick 30-minute metro ride to the Shanghai City Center, check out one of the large shopping malls near campus, or stop by one of many restaurants in the neighborhood.
