Meanwhile, students will be staying at rooms located within the school premises. Students will be sharing rooms with fellow students. Rooms can accommodate 2 to 3 students depending on the room sizes. Generally, there would be about 2 students per room. However, this depends on the number of students.
Usually during the summertime, there will be more students so short-term students might be required to share rooms. During these times the 2-3 students/room might apply.
