If you wish to stay at ITB’s dormitory, you will be required to request to your host Faculty or School to book a room for you. Alternatively, you can inform the International Relations Office.

You can also opt to find an accommodation around the campus in Bandung. Students usually choose to live in home stays or local housing near the campus. Homestays that are close to the campus have a distance of around 5 – 10-minute walk, in Cisitu, Tubagus Ismail, and Pelesiran areas. The rates range from IDR 1,000,000 to 3,000,000 per month (depending the quality or facilities provided). The landlords do not usually provide meals. Therefore, a student normally spends around IDR 3,000,000 to 6,000,000 (US$ 200 – US$500) per month, including lodging, meals, transportation, and entertainment. You should also have additional funds to pay for initial establishment costs, textbooks, equipment, and incidentals.
