Housing

All students, except those living with a host family nearby campus, live on campus at the University of International Business and Economics. Students live in one of two international student residence halls. Building 6 is a traditional residence hall with en suite bathrooms and communal kitchens on each floor. Rooms in Building 5 include a kitchenette. Both are double occupancy, though private rooms may be available for an additional fee. See the Price List to learn more.

There are several additional amenities located inside Building 6 which are available to all TBC students including: a small convenience store, laundry facilities and a recently refurnished lounge with a television, DVD player, DVDs and an assortment of cooking supplies. In addition, there is a private, wireless study lounge that is accessible to TBC students 24 hours a day.

Students in buildings 5 & 6 are provided wireless internet access in their residence hall rooms. Students coming from western countries will notice that the internet is slower and supervised by the Chinese government.

Chinese Roommates

Students living in building 6 have the option to request a Chinese Roommate. Chinese roommates are undergraduate UIBE students who are actively involved leaders on campus. While they speak English, they are encouraged to speak as much Chinese as possible when living with their TBC roommate. Chinese roommates can be a great source to develop language skills and to immerse in daily interactions with the culture and the country at large.

Host Families

Students who return to TBC for a second semester have an opportunity for further immersion through the option of a homestay. Our host families live on or nearby campus and most speak some English. Students who live with a host family gain valuable insights into the lives of Chinese people as well as further developing their language skills.
