What housing does SAI offer students?
SAI housing is included in the cost of all SAI 360° Services Programs. SAI housing is rooted in community, and our housing encourages students to build strong communities both with each other and locals. SAI housing options differ in each city, and include student apartments, dorms and family homestays. Standard SAI housing includes a shared room, although students have the option of requesting a private room for an added fee. For more information see Housing.
Are accommodations available for students with learning and/or physical disabilities?
SAI is committed to doing everything in our power to provide accommodations to all students who require them. Students with disabilities are encouraged to begin planning their study abroad experience well in advance, and to begin their search by speaking with a SAI Admissions Counselor. This allows ample time to identify the right program for each student, and for SAI to provide accommodations to the best of our abilities. For more see Student Diversity.
