1.Apartment

If you plan to stay in Yunnan for a long time, a private apartment is another option. This is a good choice for older, independent students, who are comfortable cooking for themselves, since no meals are included. A good level of Chinese is recommended as you will have to use it to communicate with others all the time. Due to the high demand for apartments in the area a request for an apartment must be sent to us at least 30 days before you arrive.
Please send your request for a housing service at least 30 days before you arrive in Yunnan.
Cost:

  • Prices vary ($300 /month or more)
  • Service Fee :$50, One-time nonrefundable
  • Usually unfurnished room with no (or some type of) utilities included

 

2.Chinese Host Family (Homestay)

Staying with an Chinese family offers a valuable opportunity to combine your Chinese program with the experience of living with an Chinese host family. Carefully selected host families provide a dependable home for students who want to experience Chinese culture in daily life and practice Chinese conversation with native speakers. This is also a good option for younger students who would benefit from special attention from adults. If you plan to arrange other housing by yourself this could be a good solution for the first month or two to help you acclimate to Chinese culture. The monthly fee includes a private bedroom, a private or shared bathroom, utilities (except long-distance phone service)
Please send your request for a housing service at least 45 days before you arrive in Yunnan.

3.Hotel

If you plan to stay for a short time, or need a place to stay the first few days in the US before more long-term accommodation is ready for you, HY can book a hotel room for you or your visiting family members near the school.
Please send your request for a housing service at least 30 days before you arrive in Yunnan.

4.Dormitory

Live like a Chinese college student, sharing a living environment with other students. A private dorm near our school is a great option for flexible and independent students. You can choose between a private or shared room, which is usually furnished. Current pricing (subject to change without prior notice):

  • Shared room, from $ 150 /month
