Living in Jordan

IMG_3037Amman is an expensive city, so be prepared to make and stick to a budget during your semester (especially if you plan to travel over breaks and weekends!). In addition to your personal expenses (phones, transportation, bank fees, toiletries, etc.), subsidized program trips for the fall will cost between $150-250, depending on which trips and optional excursions / hikes you choose to participate in. Also keep in mind that your lifestyle here might differ from home or on campus – perhaps you will spend more time in cafes (read: buying lattes) rather than studying at UJ’s library, taking an Uber to and from evening social events rather than walking, or exploring every weekend rather than Netflixing.
