  • The school will safe some money if 2 foreigners live in one room. So if you are going to Song Jiang with a friend and want to live in one room, you can ask for a discount between 500 and 900 Yuan each. If they don't want to lower the price, you can demand 2 separate rooms. However, you can't expect a discount if you don't ask in advance and if the answer is "maybe", you can count on a "NO". ! Ask in advance !
  • Let's say you want to live in a room with Chinese students - a 12 student dorm. First of all, they don't want you to live in a room with Chinese students, because the living conditions are very poor and they only want good reputation. Secondly you would never be able to go on a private toilet. I mean the Chinese toilet rooms don't have doors and there are only hip high walls in-between the cabins. You could only shower a few times per week - and if you are unlucky only once. Another problem would be finding a safe place for your credit cards and your passport. You have no idea how fast personal things can disappear in a room with 12 Chinese students. Anyway, if you are willing to live in these conditions, speak Chinese or look Chinese, there is a chance they will allow you to live in such a room. ! Ask in advance !
  • If you plan to stay for a long time, you can ask them to split you school fee into school fee, room and food. This way you could try to save some money by living outside the school or by eating cheaper.
  • If you speak fluent Chinese or look asian, it should be no problem to get a discount, but you have to know that for less money, you will get less service.
