Housing & Student Life

Please see below for advice from past students:
  • "I lived in Dinwiddy House which is not official university housing but is basically a SOAS dorm. It's not glamorous but definitely has everything you need and you get your own single and a shared kitchen."
  • "I actually found more opportunities to meet locals through church activities. I would highly recommend this to those who are religious. If not, I would recommend you to join clubs or other social events that are regular if you want to meet same locals regularly and build relationship."

Money Matters

Students who receive financial aid at Princeton continue to receive Princeton financial aid for the approved costs of study abroad programs during the academic year. For detailed information about financial aid, program fees, and billing for study abroad, please visit the Money Matters section of the Study Abroad website.
