Residence Life

 Checking in/out of the dorms
International dormitories are located at buildings 1, 2, and 4. Buildings 1 and 2 are located on campus, to the northwest of the Multi-Function (Zonghe) Building. Upon your arrival at Tongji, you should immediately go to your pre-assigned dormitory building for Check-In.
You will be asked for a ¥1500 deposit (This applies EVEN if you are a scholarship student) and for your admission notification forms. After this, you will be given your room key. Self-Pay students will also be required to pay their rent at this time.
Checking out of the dorms should be completed by July 31 (Spring) or January 31 (Fall). You must first make arrangements with the front desk of your dormitory for check out and room inspection prior to your leaving.

Setting up Internet:
To access the internet in the dormitory buildings, you will have to go to the China Telecom store located between the Main Gate and the Multi-Function Building. They ask for a deposit of ¥55 and your passport after which you will be issued a card with your Internet ID Number and Password (111111).
They are often busy at the beginning of the semester so expect to have to wait a few days after your card has been issued for your Internet to work.
All Internets is initially available only via modem cable connection. A wireless router can be purchased at many locations near the campus, or even in the China Telecom store.
If you have technical difficulties you may call either +86 10000 and select 2 for English help (they are available 24 hours per day). Or for more in depth technical problems you can call the technician directly at +86 65982560 (on this line they ONLY speak Chinese and are only available between 8am and 5pm Monday through Saturday). You can expect Internet access to cost ¥50 per month. Cards can be purchased at China Mobile kiosks along Zhang Wu Road (彰武路) or you can return to the China Telecom store to recharge your internet.

in every shop. And it is not fixed if you want to print a lot.
