Living Arrangements:


Students live in student accommodations arranged by the Housing Department of the Central International Office. All students who send in their application form by the deadline are guaranteed accommodation in a student dorm. On the housing preference form, which is sent once accepted into the program, students can indicate their preferences and the housing office will send an offer by e-mail. This procedure starts in June and ends in September (for students starting in September). During this period it is very important that the students have access to their e-mail. Housing cost ranges from Euro 325 to Euro 500 for a larger single room. In case student accommodation is unavailable, the Housing Department will assist students in finding an apartment in Amsterdam. For more information click here.

Costs: A full description of the program costs and billing procedures is described in the budget sheets (Spring, Fall).

Financial Aid/Scholarships: Students are eligible to carry existing financial aid and scholarships on Emory-approved study abroad programs. Students may also be eligible to apply for the Benjamin Gilman Scholarship. For more information, please visit Study Abroad Scholarships, Grants, Research & Service.
