    Fudan University Housing

    Advertisements



    This is an offshoot of the main Fudan thread; this one is about housing specifically.

    The dorms are now full - there usually isn't enough space for all the international students, but fear not - there are a lot of solutions near campus.

    One popular place (but a bit expensive) is Tonghe International Student Apartments, which is located at 28 Wudong Road, right down the street from campus. I don't have their phone number, but it's pretty easy to book after you get to SH.

    There are also quite a lot of apartment complexes, with cheaper ones without names, and those that are expensive such as KIC Plaza (which is just being finished right now) on Daxue Road.

    If you can read Chinese, there is a good website for searching for housing online (it puts you in contact with real estate agents) - ????,???,??,??,??-????????. However, take note that Shanghai law states that the real estate agent finder's fee for rentals is 33% of one month's rent.

    When looking and comparing pricing, remember that the dorm is 2700/month for a single with private bathroom, including utilities, but not including internet. If you are sharing with someone and sharing a bathroom/living room, it is easy to find something at 2000 or significantly less. If you are looking for a single bedroom apartment or studio, 2000-2500 is probably a good price.

    For the lease, see if you can sign til the middle of next July. This is when the 09-10 school year ends (Last exams are 7/10). This way, you can move to Fenglin (medical campus) at the beginning of summer vacation to settle things down.

    It's always better to share an apartment, in my opinion, and even better if it is with people in your class. Perhaps there are other people out there on VMD who were also shut out of booking a room in the dorm.

    I've also seen good listings on Shanghai EnjoyClassifieds: Shanghai Jobs, Personals, Property classifieds - Thursday, July 16 2009 and craigslist: shanghai classifieds for jobs, apartments, personals, for sale, services, community, and events. Again, for those who can read Chinese, Google ͼ (China's Google Maps), it is a convenient place to check the distance from school, and which possible bus routes are available, and even how long it takes.

    I rented an apartment on Guoding Road, at #101, but it is a bit far. There are many complexes which are occupied by Chinese couples and families, and aren't specifically designated as student housing.

    For a single apartment, I think an average price would be around 2500-3000 RMB for a "foreign" standard apartment. Of course, there would probably be some that are less if you are willing to settle for less (perhaps smaller, no elevator, older, etc).

    Well, you can get it easily to ¥1500 if you share with other people - so if you can find a 2 or 3 person apartment to share, the cost goes down significantly!

    Nope - each person would still have their own room - it would be a 2 or 3 bedroom apartment, with a living room, kitchen, 1-2 bathrooms, etc.

    At the Foreign Students Dorm at Handan campus you mentioned earlier that we have to pay for internet, correct? Do you remember how much it was and for how much time? Please let me know. Thanks!

    I'm not sure - I just remember it being in increments of 25, 30, and 100 yuan, at either 512K or 1M speeds. It was counted by the minute, and a 30 yuan card could last a few weeks, if you're not on constantly (School's intranet can be accessed for free - with free movies, shows, email, school resources, etc)
