When freshmen arrived at JNU on Sept. 19, their biggest concern was their dormitory life for the next four years. The Student Community Management Center was well prepared to welcome them.
Two new student dormitories have been built on the South Campus this year. The community center collaborated with related departments in construction,furniture installation and room inspection during the summer to make sure freshmen could check in as planned.

It is known that the allocation principle of dormitories is to arrange students of the same major and year together, which makes it convenient for administration and communication. Mr. Fu Xiang says that some students come to JNU with their classmates, so they may want to live together; overseas students have different beliefs, so if they are more willing to have roommates of the same beliefs, nationalities and complexions, we try our best to arrange for them.
Dormitory space is allocated to house students of the same major and year together for convenient administration and communication. Fu Xiang, administrator of the communitycenter, says some students come to JNU with their high school classmates, so they may want to live together; overseas students may want roommates of the same beliefs, nationalities and ethnic groups.
In addition, each campus makes different arrangements for special-needs students. Disabled students may apply for low-rise double rooms with low beds, in addition to cabinets, tables and chairs like thosein ordinary dormitories. •“In the special rooms of the South Campus, students can push wheelchairs into the toilets,” Fu said. “The bathrooms place benches so disabled students can sit to wash.” He added, “Students over 1.9 meters tall can apply for special rooms with lengthened beds.”
“We hope to create a platform for students from everywhere to study and communicate,” he said. “The Multicultural Exchange Workshop holds gathering activities in the Dragon Boat Festival and Mid-Autumn Festival for students to share local customs and practices.”
