Semester in the Mediterranean: Greek Heritage


Student Housing

While in Cyprus, you will stay with other Global Learning Semesters students in same-sex apartments or houses (units). Your housing will be either in residential areas near the University of Nicosia campus or near the downtown shopping district of Nicosia.

Some important points about housing
  • Unlike some other study programs, we guarantee housing. Your housing will be available for move-in at the beginning of the program.

  • Our units are modern, furnished, and include kitchens, lounges and basic amenities. As is typical of apartment living, not all units are identical as it relates to amenities, furniture and size.

  • Our base fees are for double-occupancy living (e.g. two students per bedroom). Units might have 1, 2 or more bedrooms.
  • All of our units have WiFi (wireless internet broadband) available. The University of Nicosia campus library has also WiFi access available for all students.

  • Students that would like a bedroom of their own can request a single room by paying the single supplement with their program fees. We cannot guarantee availability of single rooms and will refund single supplements if we cannot accommodate a single room request. It is highly unlikely that a student will be able to successfully request a single room after he or she has arrived in Cyprus.

  • Room assignment occurs after the participant list for a semester is finalized. We attempt to accommodate reasonable roommate or housing preferences, but make no guarantees that we will be able to do so.

  • Our units are not supervised residence halls. Students are expected to be capable of mature, independent apartment-style living with their roommates.
  • All else being equal, we prioritize housing requests based on the date we receive a student's full payment (earlier is better). This is not an absolute factor, but is used as a "tie-breaker" when needed.

  • Most of our units are within walking distance of the University of Nicosia (approximately 5-15 minutes by foot). We help make supplemental travel arrangements for students located downtown that might need to travel to school by car or bus.

Housing outside of Cyprus

When we travel, we stay in tourist-class hotels, not hostels. These hotels are clean, safe, comfortable and reasonably located. On these trips, students stay two to a room (same-sex) in the vast majority of cases.

There might be occasions when students will stay three to a room (same-sex) in a triple room.
