The university has several student dormitories for Iranian male and female student, all located close to the main campus. The international students may live in the same dormitories as their Iranian counterparts. The rooms in these dormitories are typically designed to accommodate four or five people. Although we do our best to put international students together in the same rooms, this is not always possible and we do not guarantee the number or the nationalities of the roommates.
