Students studying for more than half an year are required to obtain a "X" visa and must apply for aResidence Permit within 30 days of arrival in order to obtain a legal status in China at Beijing Municipal Public Security Bureau.

Since the number of rooms may not be adequate to host all international students, we strongly recommend students apply ASAP after the admission.Students could also choose to live off-campus if there is any appropriate apartment available. Students may find accommodation off-campus by visiting local real estate agents.
There are several banks near the campus where international students can open a bank account after arrival in Beijing. We recommend students open an account in Bank of China.Many banks in Beijing accept Traveler,s Checks, however as it takes many working days to process the checks, we recommend students prepare some cash on hand to cover the short-term expenses.With a bank account in Beijing, students may wire-transfer money to this bank account.
