Summer in Thailand – Housing

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

Please note that although CISabroad makes every effort to provide your preferred housing, we cannot guarantee that all personal preferences are met. We have carefully selected safe and adequate housing for students and each living arrangement is distinct and special in its own way.

Your accommodations will be different than what you’ve come to expect in your home country.  Now is the time to open your mind and get ready to experience something different; this attitude is in the spirit of your decision to study abroad. Please also remember, that when you are abroad, you will be representing your home institution and your home country; behave appropriately.

Below is a breakdown of the policy in Thailand.

Keep your room and the common areas clean; this is especially important because your international dorm mates may find it very disrespectful if you leave the area dirty.  Please consider others when using the common areas!

In order to avoid disturbing the neighbors or housemates, please use headphones when listening to music, or keep the volume low, and please keep your voices down.

Utilities and use:

  • Air conditioning should be used sparingly. NEVER leave air conditioning units on while you are not home.
  • Always turn off the lights when you leave your housing and when you are not in the room.


  • You should lock your room door at all times. Also, when leaving the room, make sure the windows are closed and locked. Neither the study abroad company nor the housing company will be responsible for any stolen items.
  • If the keys to the room are stolen, lost or misplaced, all locks to the room will have to be replaced at the student’s expense, including key copies for housing staff members.
  • If the keys are left inside the room staff will be able to help you gain access.
  • It is strictly forbidden to throw any object or substance from windows, balconies, terraces or roofs. This includes keys, cigarette butts or anything else big or small.

Guests and Alcohol Policies:

  • Disrespectful behavior related to alcohol consumption will end up in dismissal from the housing and you will have to find your own housing at your own expense.
  • The consumption of drugs, as well as keeping or dealing with them, is absolutely prohibited

Financial Liability:

  • You will have to pay for any damage done to the housing building (doors, walls, floors, furniture, supplies, washing equipment, etc.).
  • If extra time is needed to clean the apartment, or if items are damaged or missing, you will be charged and those charges will be deducted from your housing deposit. Housing deposits will be returned 8-12 weeks after the program has ended.

Helpful tips for living with other people:

  • Respect your hosts and the other people that 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 / hall mates  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 your Site Director if a problem arises and you cannot work it out with your hall mates.

Warning process:

  • If any of the above rules are broken, you will receive a first verbal warning. This warning will also be written and sent to your sending study abroad program and your home school.
  • The second infraction of any of the above rules will result in you being evicted from your apartment. You will need to find a new place to live at your own expense.
  • Please read through all of our behavior policies noted in the CISabroad Policy Handbook, linked inside of the attachment to your acceptance email

Overview Of Mahidol Housing

Students on the CISabroad Program will be housed at the Bundit Complex, in either a single or double room, depending on what you chose in your application. All bedding and linens are included, but you will want to purchase or bring their own towel to have more than one to use.  Each room has a bathroom, bedroom, and powerful air conditioner.
