VI. Accommodation single room in a host family
In selecting host families, we do not look for luxury and comfort in the material sense but for
Chinese families who appreciate receiving foreign students. Additionally, the word "family"
should not be taken too literally, as a family can be "traditional" with children, a single parent or
a childless couple who take in students because they want to practice a cultural exchange.

You can take your breakfast together with the family. Breakfast usually only consists of coffee or
tea and Chinese cooking. You can also take your dinner with the family but you should be aware
that Chinese eating habits can be rather different from your own (dinner at around 6:00 pm)
and take part in the expenses.

Living with a family offers a unique opportunity to become acquainted with the Chinese culture
and way of living, but it also requires compromises between the host and you.
Therefore there are some house rules which you must take into consideration :
  ➢ Leave your room presentable and not wake up the family after 22:00 when returning home.

  ➢ Not use any family belongings without permission.

  ➢ You are allowed to use the common rooms and to receive telephone calls.

  ➢ Your room is not closed by key and is cleaned daily.

Terms of payment
Payment in 4 steps: 1500 元 application fee to be paid when applying, and 3 terms from 11040 元
(12 October 2010, 03 January 2010, 02 April 2010).

Living in a apartment, together with other foreign students, requires maturity but allows you
considerable independence. You share with the room mate(s) the living room, the bathroom and
the kitchen and can cook on your own.
    ➢  Beiyan Institute students share the flat's living room, kitchen and bathroom.
    ➢  Apartments include: stove, microwave oven, washing machine.
    ➢  You can prepare your meals separately or together with your flatmates.
    ➢  Electricity, gas, water and maintenance costs are not included in the apartment renting
       price (budget: ± 170 元/month/student).
    ➢  Bed-linens are provided free of charge but you have to bring your own towels.
    ➢  Each apartment is provided with telephone and Internet ADSL Wifi access.
    ➢  The apartments are cleaned before your arrival. During your stay, you are responsible for
       the cleaning of your rooms and of the rooms used in common (living room, kitchen and
       bathroom).

Rules of behaviour in the shared apartments
 ✔ Always leave the common rooms clean and presentable and wash the dishes after use.

 ✔ Throw the garbage in the street containers every day.

 ✔ Do not awake your flat mates when returning home after 22:00.
 ✔   Do not organize "parties" (parties especially with people not living in the apartment, are
