Once you are admitted by our institution, you may start making your accommodation arrangement. In Vietnam, non-local students can opt for on- or off-campus accommodation. You are advised to contact the Residence Office or Student Affairs Office of your institution directly to explore the accommodation options available for you.

On-campus Accommodation

The dormitory policy for non-local students varies among institutions. For University Grants Committee-funded institutions, non-local undergraduate students are normally offered dormitory places for at least two years during their study period, probably the first two years of study. Some institutions even offer dormitory places for the entire duration of study.

For on-campus accommodation, unless you opt for a single room, you will be made to share a room with local students or other non-local students of the same gender, as part of our institutions’ efforts to help you make friends and assimilate into university life. If you want to save money and travelling time, on-campus accommodation is the best choice for you.

Here, the fee for on-campus living ranges from US$300 to US$600U per semester which varies from institution to institution. Besides, most dormitories do not provide bed sheets and pillows. Please grasp your own set of linens from our shops before moving in.

As demand for student dormitories is huge, you are advised to arrange your accommodation as early as possible if you plan to live on-campus.

Off-campus Accommodation

There has been a surge in the number of non-local students studying in Vietnam in recent years. Given the limited dormitory places, institutions may not be able to allocate a dormitory place to each and every non-local student.

For those who cannot secure a dormitory place, private rental accommodation is always an alternative. Living off-campus is more expensive than on-campus. The rental for off-campus accommodation could be in the range of US$150 –US$300 a month depending on the size, location and type of accommodation. Usually, places in the vicinity of university campuses are difficult to acquire and more expensive than those farther away. If you want to save money, you may consider sharing the house with a few room-mates.

If you choose to live off-campus, you should commence your search well in advance to your arrival. Some institutions would offer assistance in providing information on off-campus accommodation. You may contact their Residence Office or Student Affairs Office for more details.
