I heard that you can get the school to send someone to pick you up at the airport? Can anyone confirm?

@eseanyang Yeah.. There is an airport pickup service by the university. You should contact oversea students affairs for further enquiry. Hope this helps :)

So I happened to pass-by the BFSU Accommodation/hotel site and I thought I'll just share it here for you guys to view.

And just a curious question, when are you guys arriving at the University?

@tytzer has your accommodation been confirmed yet? A boy from our uni who has been at BFSU for a year already and is going back this semester had a chat to us both yesterday and it has just made us FAR too excited...we're almost starting to pack!!!

@sarahvbarlow My accommodation has not been confirmed yet. I contacted my agent (CUCAS) regarding the status of it and they told me that BFSU is processing my reservation request and will inform them as soon as possible. And overseas affairs also told me that it'll be around August.

@sarahvbarlow I applied for the GuoJiao building: Single room with Toilet. Did you apply directly to the University or via third-party? I applied through CUCAS which is similar to the UK's UCAS. The worst thing that can happen is that I will have reserve a room on the spot. (Based on availability of course)

@sarahvbarlow Intersting.. Because when BFSU sent me the admission package (Around mid June), it also included the accommodation reservation form which to my understanding was the most updated one. Now I'm getting anxious knowing that it was under renovations when you applied. :-?

@tytzer well i selected it as my first choice and they got back to me straight away, but basically said it was because of the renovations that this accommodation would be offered to students starting later...don't stress! I'm sure everything will work out and there will be somewhere! :)

@sarahvbarlow No I haven't. I just graduated from College (Pre-U) and I just drive there from home. I've been to China plenty of times but usually on short-term and never really long-term. So yeah, I'm having mixed feelings about my university life. :lol:

@sarahvbarlow Oh don't worry. I'm sure you'll do fine. I understand you don't speak Chinese but there's always body-language. 8)
