Fully furnished single/shared rooms in a brand new building located a two-minute drive away from CIL. Grocery stores and restaurants are nearby. The beach is literally five minutes from the building!

All units are located on floors fully equipped with new kitchen appliances, utensils, washing and drying facilities. Students can keep costs down by cooking their own meals.


Students travel to and from the campus on the CIL private bus during the week. On weekends and evenings, local taxis provide transportation as well as opportunities for practicing Arabic! Also available (especially for male students) are baisa buses, local vans that ply the Sultan Qaboos Highway, transporting people from one end of Muscat to the other at a very affordable cost. The Mwasalat public transportation services are also available as an option to travel around Muscat. We encourage our students to use public transportation in groups in order to reduce costs.

For older students not in our study abroad program, car rental is also an option, and we can help to make arrangements any time.
