Housing & Dining


At DKU, you’ll be joining a diverse community of undergraduates from across China (65% of all students) and more than 65 countries from around the world (35% of all students).  All visiting students live in on-campus Residence Halls (double occupancy, dormitory-style rooms) with fellow visiting students and full-time DKU students.  

Students may have the ability to request roommate preferences with either DKU students or other visiting/exchange students. Students will be assigned housing and roommates according to availability. Students with specific needs may request single rooms; accommodations requests are not guaranteed and should be requested early.

More details are available on DKU Residence Life.

Move-in information will be updated in the DKU Academic Calendar.

On-campus dining halls are open for three meals a day, seven days a week, but periodically close for major holidays and when the university campus is closed. Email notices will inform students of closures. Halal options are available, but Kosher options are not available at this time. Students with special dietary needs can meet with DKU Food Services to make arrangements. All meals must be paid for using a pre-loaded DKU ID Card or WeChat. The DKU ID Card allows for a 10% discount.

Students are not required to purchase a meal plan at DKU. Students may opt to eat off campus when schedules permit or have food delivered to DKU. A wide variety of delivery options are available locally, and the Dayu Bay shopping area, located 10 minutes from campus, offers some additional restaurant options.
