We are one of the only Institutes in Egypt providing on-campus living for families and single students. Living with other like-minded students is a great way to make new social connections, and even close friends while experiencing a new culture. Studying Arabic and Quran is a task that requires will and determination. Closely living with students that have the same goals as you, will keep each other motivation on track.
We have living options for single students (dorm rooms), small families and larger families. The accomodation is for 3-, 6-, 9-, or 12-month accommodation agreements. You can also rent on a day-to-day basis.

A decent quality apartment can generally be found starting $500 a month. The price can vary, depending on location, quality of furnishings and whether you live on your own or with roommates.
If you plan to arrange accommodation on your own, we recommend that you book a hotel for your initial arrival. In this way you can have a place to stay while searching for an apartment.
