Module 3: Semester in China – Housing

Here are some general rules, tips and expectations to help you become accustomed to your new home!


Helpful tips for living with other people:

  • Respect your hosts and the other people who live in the building.
  • Remember that you are not on a college campus and not in your own home. Respect the property and get out of the “college campus” mentality.
  • Talk to your roommates if they do something that bothers you. Talking it through is the easiest way to solve a small problem before it gets bigger.
  • Talk to the staff if a problem arises and you cannot work it out with your roommates.

Rules and Warning Process:

  • CISabroad expects students to follow our Code of Conduct, found in the CISabroad Policy Handbook, at all times. This includes following UIBE and dorm rules as well.
  • If rules are broken, we will enact our disciplinary policies. This includes a three-strike system of a verbal warning, written warning, and then dismissal from program. If the transgression is severe enough we will skip the verbal and possibly the written warning and go directly to dismissal. Please make sure you are aware of these policies and any UIBE or dorm rules.
