Choosing your accommodation
You are free to choose your preferred type of accommodation.
There are plenty of accommodation options both near the campus and at popular tourist areas. The prices vary depending on the location and the amenities. Most of the students prefer renting a private villa with a pool as a group.
In the Asian business culture, it’s common to do business face-to-face and arranging accommodation in advance by email or phone may be difficult. This is nothing to worry about, though, because taking care of housing arrangements once you are on location at the destination is straightforward. This is also when the details of the rental agreement and the final price are agreed upon.
It’s recommended to stay at a hostel/hotel for a few days after arriving in Indonesia and compare different housing options. This also allows you to meet fellow students and find roommates. Our partner Agoda has good deals on hotels.
Another great option is to book your accommodation with Trustlr. They offer fantastic deals for students including accommodations in Bali’s hotspots, such as Canggu.
