3.5/5
Housing
Type of housing: Dormatory
Arranged by: Host university
If returning, I would choose: Apartment/House
Why?
More freedom. Women and Men aren't allowed to mix so as an american this was difficult. I prefer a more realistic in eviroment wheree both sexes have to interact with one another.

My only problem with my living arrangements other than you couldn't have your friends to your room if they were male... was my roommate who was 18 and at the time I was 24. I think they should pair people up according to there age and experience. It was difficult living with someone so young who had never been exposed to anything in life really. She was from Sudan and had a very strict family but basically lost her mind because she was free to go out and do what ever as long as she was back by crufew. I loved AUC but I think that living out in the city is better than being in the dorms.

3.0/5
Housing
Type of housing: Not technically ON campus but university housing
Arranged by: Host university
If returning, I would choose: Apartment/House
Why?
It would allow for more freedom... the guards can be a little strict sometimes, plus housing was so cheap off campus. I could have had my own bathroom... But living in the dorms allows you to get to know other people a LOT better

It depends on what you like... if you don't mind dorm style bathrooms and roommates who stay up all night, then its great. You get to know other kids really well, but there is a lack of privacy. If you don't like cats, you might not like the dorm because there are lots of "adopted" dorm cats that live in the lobby. The guards can be strict with females sometimes, but its Egypt!

AUC is a private University. On one side it was a new experience for me. Housing were out of campus but through University. Excellent location and staff. Maybe rules too stiff.

Housing
Type of housing: dorm building off campus
Arranged by: Host university
If returning, I would choose: Apartment/House

You should live in the dorm building for the first semester to get used to Cairo, but it's *so* much less expensive to live in an apartment.

Generally speaking, the American University of Cairo provides its study abroad students with very good housing facilities and they have dorms in another part of town that are apparently very satisfactory and offer all the necessary facilities and requirements. So far I have never heard any complaints about their housing.
