Personal comments
Well, there is not a really big campus. So, the only accomodations found in it, are principally for students who live far from the University. One of the good thing, I think, is that we are in contact with another nationalities... And I like that. We have rooms for 2 students and also personnal rooms. And the rooms are quite big enough..So, its really fine... I love it !!
