Student Residence

About the Student Residence

USJ is known for its international pool of students, and it offers a limited number of residences to accommodate students, especially those coming from overseas – which are International and/or Exchange students.

Students at USJ can apply for accommodation in the USJ Student Residences managed by the University Residence Office. Residences are currently available in 2 different locations; one is at the city center of Macau and another one is in Taipa. Both are easily connected to the University by public transportation. All rooms are fully but simply furnished, and equipped with air conditioner and wireless internet.

Student Residences are offered and given first priority to Year 1 International/Exchange Students. The residences are also offered to other students depending on their case/justification of request for accommodation. Cleaning service of the common areas is usually provided on a regular basis.
