Housing is arranged for program participants by the Center for Global Education (CGE). Students on this program live in furnished student apartments with other international students. The apartments are within walking distance of the University. You will have access to shared kitchen facilities in your apartment to prepare your own meals, or you can join your peers in the student mensa (cafeteria) on campus. At the University, you will also have access to libraries, a fitness center, and wireless internet.

Financial Considerations

During a semester abroad, CSB+SJU students pay the same tuition as if on campus. Instead of paying CSB+SJU Housing and Meal Plan, all students studying abroad pay an Education Abroad Program Fee. Find Program Fee information on the CSBSJU-Global Portal.  

Students should plan early for a successful study abroad experience. Financial aidand scholarships may be available to help with program costs, but must be searched out well in advance.
