Dushu Lake Science and Higher Education Innovation District provides all students with accommodation. For international, China's HK, Macao and Taiwan students, Parfait Hotel and Apartments, and Scholar’s Apartments are available.

Currently, the accommodation facilities in which our students stay are located within the Suzhou Industrial Park (SIP) where the university is situated and are managed privately by the Suzhou Industrial Park Education Development and Investment Limited Company. They are not owned or managed directly by the university, but we communicate with them on your behalf.

You will receive information about your accommodation options once you have received your unconditional offer. We will assist in booking accommodation once you have paid your deposit to secure your place at XJTLU. Where possible, we will try to allocate you to your preferred choice of accommodation. However, if your first choice is unavailable, we will try to match you to a second choice which is as similar as possible.
