Living in Amman
Take a quick study break and stroll the University of Jordan campus grounds. Visit the National Gallery of Fine Arts. Get your housemates together and have an international potluck. Check out the spice market and buy za’atar (thyme spice blend) for a relative back home. Attend a concert with your language partner. Review for your upcoming exam at a café with some Arabic coffee. Watch the sunset at the Amman Citadel. Exploration is rewarded in a place like Amman.
The University of Jordan
The program is based at The University of Jordan in Amman. The large campus offers many resources, including access to the library and a running track. You’ll also receive a UJ student ID card, which will get you reduced fees at many of the city’s historical and archaeological sites.
Housing & Meals
You’ll share an off-campus apartment with local roommates and other CET students in a traditional Jordanian neighborhood. Apartments offer you the opportunity to experience and adapt to local life, as well as extend your Arabic language practice beyond the classroom. The apartments are also fully furnished, air-conditioned, and have everything you need within walking distance. For meals, take your pick of the city’s many cheap eats, or cook at home.
