Housing Details:

There are 500 spaces for summer school students at on-campus housing facilities, International House and SK Global House. They are both located very close to the New Millennium Hall, where many of YISS classes will be held. Due to a limited number of rooms, students are strongly recommended to apply for the on-campus housing as soon as they receive their admission number from YISS.
