* IMPORTANT FOR ARRIVAL AND DEPARTURE DATES. Note that the normal arrival date is two days prior to orientation, with departure day being the Sunday after finals end. Housing is included for these dates. Longer stays may be arranged at additional cost, but require at least one month’s advance notice.
** ALBA reserves the right to levy any necessary surcharges on housing costs in the event that our own dollar costs increase by more than ten percent over the course of a term due to currency fluctuations. However, once the student has paid for housing any fluctuations are the responsibility of ALBA and the student will not be charged any additional costs. So it is advantageous to decide your accommodation choice early and get your housing fees paid even if your tuition payment is delayed for some reason.
*** ALBA reserves the right to confirm the apartment where the student will live, 30 days before arriving.
