HOST INSTITUTION
Global E³ is an exchange program for engineering students: a student can study abroad while continuing to pay tuition at home. With member universities in 18 countries, students at 50+ universities have the opportunity to study abroad. Global E³ exchanges about 200-250 students a year. Georgia Tech is a member of Global E³ and GT students may apply to go abroad for a semester or academic year to GE³ partner institutions such as IT Bandung.

Institut Teknologi Bandung (ITB) is a 29 hectare campus located in the northern area of the city of Bandung, West Java, Indonesia. Surrounded by enjoyable green hills at 720 meter above sea level, Bandung is granted with mild weather all over the year ranging between 18-29 degree Centigrade. Since early 20th century Bandung has been dedicated to be the home base of the development of sciences and advanced technologies in Indonesia.

ITB is the first and largest scientific and technical university in Indonesia founded during the colonial era in 1920. Now, it consists of 12 Faculties & Schools offering courses and research in sciences, technologies as well as fine arts.

HOUSING
  • student dormitory (male students only)
  • homestays
  • other off-campus housing
Accommodation in the student dormitory is a shared and furnished room for 2, a shared kitchen, and a shared bathrooms.

It is not very difficult to find an accommodation in Bandung. Students usually live in home stays, the quality of which varies according to the rent level. Several students also find local housing in around the campus.

Favorite homestays are usually those close to the campus such as those in Cisitu, Tubagus Ismail and Pelesiran, only 5 – 10 minute walk from the campus. The rate of a standard room ranges from IDR 700,000 (around $52) to 2,000,000 (around $150) per month for a simply-furnished one. Students in homestays generally provide their own meals as meals are not normally provided by the landlords.

The International Relations Office is happy to help students find accommodation.
