Our Outlook

We believe that a comfortable living setting has as much to do with a student’s academic success as does the classroom environment, curriculum, and instructor. Accordingly, we have dedicated a number of staff to assist with housing placement, housemate matching, and offering guidance related to budgeting, belongings to bring, and other student life questions. Based on consistent feedback that we’ve received from students over the past fifteen years, it seems that these services are quite rare among private Arabic institutes in the Middle East. However, as your hosts from the moment you arrive until your final departure from Amman, our team views these aspects as absolutely vital to rounding out and bringing to life your Arabic learning experience.

With this responsibility in mind, we have procedures in place to ensure that no one is inadvertently left without accommodations. For all conventional students—those not included in our prearranged, Partner Program housing (see definition below)—these steps begin with the submission of an online housing form which informs us of your desire to request Qasid Housing or to find your own, Independent Housing.

This form is required for all such students intending to attend Qasid for the upcoming term—both new and continuing students—regardless of whether your plans include Qasid Housing or finding your own, Independent Housing arrangements.

The housing form becomes accessible about four weeks before each term for all applicable students who have an active, Qasid SIS account, and who have received their admissions acceptance. If you meet this criteria after the notification date mentioned below, you will receive the housing application link when the housing campaign is launched based on the dates above.  

The subsequent steps in the process for the most recent and coming terms are outlined immediately below. Overviews of all factors involved in the housing process are then described in the dropdown sections thereafter. We encourage everyone to review those topics and then contact us if any questions still remain unanswered.

We’re looking forward to having you join us.

Housing Topics Overview

Shared here below is an outline of our housing philosophy and some best practices connected to this, the two main housing options available, and important considerations relevant to each of these options.

Important points to remember

  1. The housing preference form is required for all students planing to attend Qasid for the upcoming term—both new and continuing students—regardless of whether your plans include Qasid Housing or finding your own, Independent Housing arrangements, unless your accommodations have been prearranged as a member of a Qasid Partner Program or due to another unique situation.
    As your hosts throughout your stay, this procedure assures that no one is inadvertently left without a residence during their studies with us. It also updates your student records to ensure that all relevant communications reach you, while irrelevant ones are avoided.
  2. If you are applying for enrollment independently of a Qasid Partner Program we ask that you complete the housing form accessible below ONLY for the seasonal, academic term listed in the form heading, and ONLY if, for that term, you have:
    - been admitted to Qasid,
    - paid your tuition deposit,
    - signed the student policy agreement.
    If you have NOT done all three of these things, please take care of them BEFORE submitting the housing preference form. For more information about completing these requirements, either email us at admissions@qasid.com, or find the links under the “Admissions” tab above.
  3. If, however, by the housing form deadline your admissions application is accepted  but you have still not completed the tuition deposit payment and | or not signed the student policy agreement, please submit the housing form anyway. For such students who request Qasid Housing we will reserve a room for you although we can not confirm your reservation until those items are fulfilled.
