Semester in Qatar: Housing and Meals

To experience convenience and community, students will stay in Education City housing managed by Qatar Foundation. The apartment-style units offer an opportunity to live among peers and create lasting friendships in a safe and inspiring setting. Accommodations are segregated by gender. Housing is of an exceptionally high standard. Students can easily prepare their own food or eat on campus in the Student Center, coffee shops or dining halls.

Housing application

Beginning in April of the study abroad year, students must complete an online housing application which will require two deposits. These deposits are to be paid to the Qatar Support Office on the Evanston campus. As payments are made, NU-Q will send payment to the housing office. NU-Q will also coordinate with Undergraduate Financial Aid Office to determine which funds will become available for housing costs. Housing placements are released beginning in mid-June. All housing fees should be paid prior to moving in.
