Students are free to choose their own housing option throughout the duration of their stay at Center Sidi Bou Said, and we are able to offer housing for students with a local host family or at a student housing unit located near the center. It is important to note that the number of dormitory rooms are limited and will be awarded on a first paid first served basis for each session with priority given to multiple session applicants. Please contact us to ensure that each housing option is available before submitting a registration form.
Host families provide a great opportunity for students to truly feel immersed in their new culture and practice their language as they have to communicate with the members of their host family in Arabic when at home. When they are lucky they will always have a family away from home for a lifetime. They will also have a chance to gain deeper insight into the culture and learn about local Tunisians from a completely different perspective. The price per month includes two meals a day with the host family.
Host Family: $600/month
Shared student housing options are also available near the center for students who may choose not to stay with a host family. Below are the prices for the various student housing options.
Private Dormitory Room: $400/month
