Each of the 176 apartments is fully furnished with 3-6 single bedrooms, and students prepare their own meals. The Village houses residents from over 40 countries and organizes several social events throughout the semester, including the cultural extravaganza, mystery bus trips and social sports. The large common rooms are also popular places where students gather to study, play table tennis, pool, or watch major sporting events and movies.
