SUSTech operates on the principle of equality between international and domestic students. Regarding accommodation, this means that our international students live alongside our Chinese students in the brand new dormitories (as of 2019) on our evergreen campus. The dormitories for undergraduate students consist of 4 person rooms, each with 4 bunkbeds, and desk and closet space underneath. Bathroom facilities are separate on each floor, with 8 showers and 8 toilets shared in the same floor. Whilst the dorm buildings are co-ed, there are single-sex floors with restricted access. This arrangement will change in the coming years as more new students transition to the new dormitories, although female floors will always the top floors within each building, providing stunning views across the campus. For safety reasons, no cooking facilities or kitchens are provided within the dormitories. Students can purchase cold foods for storage in personal refrigerators or make use of the campus.
