China Dorm Stay
Pitzer strives to provide students with housing that is typical for students and families in the area where the students are studying. During most of the semester in Beijing you will live in dorms on campus with Chinese roommates. You will also have an opportunity to participate in a homestay with a family in a farming family in a rural village, dependent on permission from the University and local authorities. Rural families live in small brick homes with limited modern amenities. Though there are challenges in adjustment (e.g. lack of privacy), most students find the homestay and roommate experiences to be a highlight of their culture and language learning on the program.
