EF SD: campus dorms

You chosed to live on campus during your stay in San Diego? Congratulations! Here I present you some impressions about our campus dorms.

A flat on the campus (EF shares it with Alliant University) consists of one living room, two bedrooms with two beds each and 1 bathroom. So you have to share the flat with three other persons maximum. It might be that there are less persons in your flat or that you even live alone. If you are not good with the people in your flat it is most of the time no problem to change to another room, just as in the office.

As you can see on the pictures the flats are not luxurious or something like this but in my opinion there is all you need to live. Here are also nice guys called cleaning staff who make the rooms weekly free from all your trash. Be thankful with them, even if they wake you up at 8am. They have to do their job which they do good!

Some dorms may already have a fridge, TV, microwave and other things that make your campus life more comfortable. But all this stuff was bought by other students, EF don’t offer it. So you might have to spend some money if it is important to you to have a fridge for example. But you should get everything you need for cheap. Leaving students often sell their stuff for not much money. Craigslist.com is also a good platform for all kinds of used products. And maybe you can split the costs your room- and flatmates.

I hope you have a nice time on campus and always remember that it might not be as comfortable and clean as at home but you come to San Diego to have a good time and not because the dorms!


some days…

Last Saturday started bad, I had to bring a friend to the airport. It’s every time again sad if a good person leaves the campus.

Back on campus I had to find out that our wifi is broken. What dured the whole weekend without any information or warning, thanks guys! So I went to the cafeteria, the only place which still had wifi, but it looked like they also had some troubles otherwise i can’t explain me why they opened half an hour too late.


The afternoon I spent at Lake Ramona, about which you can read here:

This day started bad, got worse, continued better and ended peacefully.
