Housing and Meals
Students pay UMW housing rates ($3322 per semester) and are required to live on campus in residence halls with local Chinese students. All rooms are double-occupancy and segregated by gender. Cooking is not permitted in the rooms, but the university operates a student cafeteria and a full service Chinese restaurant on campus that provide inexpensive meals.
