Accommodations – Pharmacy

Students from North America have a wide range of choices when it comes to finding a modern and comfortable place to live while they undertake their studies. Options include on campus self-catering units to centrally located apartments. Units come wired for internet connectivity and in many cases Wi-Fi is available as well. A deposit to reserve your accommodations will be required before the academic year begins and prices will vary between schools and the type of housing you are looking for.

Reserving your housing is mainly handled through the individual university accommodations offices. If you receive and accept an offer of admission, detailed information regarding the booking process and contact information will be provided and it will be university specific. Early booking is advised as places do fill up quickly.
