Students are free to make their own housing arrangements in Hangzhou. However, Thomas Jefferson School of Law has arranged for discounted student housing at the Hangzhou Lakeview Hotel. The hotel is very comfortable, modern and convenient and offers many special basic accommodations at a cost of approximately RMB 600 per room per night. The accommodations include free breakfast for two and a room with two separate beds, bathroom, telephone, computer access with high-speed internet, linens and towels, TV, central air-conditioning and a mini bar. There is fax service at the business center, which is equipped with advanced function facilities. Dry cleaning services are available with a discount for students. The hotel also has shopping, eating and entertainment area. Most, if not all, students and faculty will be staying at the Hangzhou Lakeview Hotel, across the street from West Lake and right in the middle of town. Bus service to the law school is available to all students in the Program, and starts from the Hangzhou Lakeview Hotel.

Additional information about housing arrangements in China, including detailed instructions for making reservations and payment and help with finding roommates, will be made available to students who have registered for the China Program. Students are advised to make housing arrangements early through the Faculty Assistant at Thomas Jefferson School of Law. DO NOT make reservations directly with the hotel or you will not receive the discounted program rate.

Students who elect to stay in China Program-organized housing will check in on Saturday, May 12, 2018 and check out on Saturday, June 2, 2017 (a 20-day stay). The discounted rates quoted are only available for the duration of the Program, and students are required to pay for the entire 21-day stay on the date of arrival, even if students decide to travel on weekends. Full payment by credit card is due on the first day of arrival.

Thomas Jefferson School of Law will assist students with housing, but is not responsible for cancellations or refunds with respect to housing in China and cannot guarantee a roommate to share your room and expenses. 

If you arrange your own housing while participating in Thomas Jefferson School of Law’s China Study Abroad Program, you must provide the Director with a valid contact address and phone number for your housing while in China prior to the start of the Program.
