How do I reserve accommodation?
Your preferred choice of accommodation
can be selected while making your application through the application portal. Kindly note that accommodation can only be fully reserved after the initial deposit has been made. Accommodation at CIU is provided on a first-come first-served basis. We encourage all applicants to make the initial deposit as early as possible to fully confirm their accommodation.
I have reserved my accommodation but would like to change it. Is it possible?
After you have made your reservation, you are unable to cancel your accommodation for the academic year, but can only upgrade it to another room type, subject to availability.
Do I need to pay accommodation fees separately?
No, the annual academic fee stated on your conditional acceptance letter and acceptance letter includes the total amount of accommodation and tuition fees (for applicants who select “accommodation and tuition only package” and for those who select the “all-inclusive package” that includes accommodation, tuition and a meal plan).
How long is the accommodation reservation?
Once you fully reserve your accommodation at the acceptance stage, you have that allocated accommodation for one academic year (2 semesters).
How long is the meal plan reservation?
Once you fully reserve your meal plan at the acceptance stage, you have it for one academic year (2semesters). After you have made your reservation, you are unable to cancel your meal plan.
Do I pay bills while living on campus?
You are only required to pay for your electricity and central heating bills, which are billed monthly. Internet services are free for registered students.
