Hi there, this is Alice.

I’m the only offical korean student here – except the 華人 maybe. well, i’m not sure how to start this post.

Ok, where i’m writing this?? – at dorm.

since the last year(was my first year here) i’m staying in the dormitory in dong hwa university. I want to show you pictures of the dormitory then explain about some details. This school has many dormitories (caused by the location) and also there are quite cheap places to stay in outside too. But you’ll still fight for the room since the 2nd year (The room has to be changed every year)

Yang shan(west, the oldest, has 4ppl and single room), Han xing(west, 4ppl, newer than yang shan), Qin yue(east, newest, 4ppl), Xie yun(west, single room and…not so sure!), Xing yun(east, next to qin yue, 2 ppl, new).

Basically old dorms are in the better location, are quite closer to the street in backdoor, zhixue jie 志學街, where we eat, and buy the things. It’s close to the humanities, management, education colleges. Also the library.

The environment is….okay. Except the fact that i saw some huge cockroaches. And maybe the parking lot is not so convenient. plus…… well my eyes couldn’t bear the han xing’s lights – somehow it irritates my eyes strongly. Below there are some pictures of han xing for example.

Usually new bachelor students will have the 沁月(new dormitory-female) or the new dorm. It’s for 4 people, and it’s located in east side as i mentioned above.

Old dorm (han xing) 

-Han xing 1

You can see that the sunshine will visit u through those almost transparent curtain in the mornings. – but it’s depends on which side is your room. Last year, the room i spent in qin yue didn’t have the sunlight.

-Han xing : bed

Oh, did i mention that 90% of taiwan universities beds are like this? it’ll be above your desk. So whenever earthquake occurs while you’re sleeping or..well, you’ll experience the new feeling.

Han xing is quite sophisticated in the design of the room. you can see there are lots of spaces to put the things. even at your bed-head side. In that part it’s better than qin yue. I felt much organized by the room.

-Han xing : window side

When you have window side, it’s like this… i prefer this side (left of the room + window), where i can get sunlight and can sleep in the peace. somehow (now i’m in right window side) it’s still weird to sleep in the opposite side.

as u can see there is bookshelf – and also some other closets (han xing is much better in this aspect than new dorms. you’ll have much more spaces to put your things in more orgarnized way).

The desk itself has a stand light? but for me it was useless cause it affected my eyes really bad.

-han xing : stair

Even the stair was divided and i could put the stuffs there. I was so touched by that.

Bathroom & other details : Bathroom is inside the room, has shower, sink, toilet inside. The lights are divided into several buttons so you can turn off your side before you go for sleep freely.(anyway i did that). Old dorms have seven-eleven and small cafeteria near. The door has….how to call it? is consisted of 2 doors like veranda door (one real door, one like window door?).

Now we’re going to the qin yue, the new dorm.

-qin yue :

the curtain will probably cover the sunlight if you use it. usually i tied it so i can wake up naturally with the nature light.

-qin yue : bed

mine has ..what we call it? small closet? but that one is what are you gonna have in the other location – if you’re side 2 or 3 yours may have the closet in your head side. The other roommates’ small closets are beside my desk.

-qin yue : desk

the desk is much simple here. it doesn’t have that annoying stand-light(?) but for some ppl that light must be useful.

and two small closet in each right left side of the desk – has a door and sharp steel(?), so u can use the locker when you need. (han xing doesn’t have door for the closet)

Bathroom & other details :

Bathroom has shower and toilet, and the sink is outside of the bathroom. which is quite convenient- since you’re living with 3 more girls, you’ll be grateful about this fact.

The lights are not divided so you may have some difficulties with your sleeping time – well all is up to you. if u can sleep when there’s still light or you’re the one who sleeps late….. no prob(i turn off the light before going sleep – and my roommates will use their lights. i can’t sleep when is too bright)

When it’s first floor : it’s much humid than the upper floors and will have a lot of bugs. this is for sure. but is convenient to go out for the breakfast. Here we have a bigger cafeteria and family mart.

+ in new dorm : 1st and 3rd floor has refrigerator & other equipments (i’m not sure other floors have it or not). usually…if u have instruments u can cook in your room – but if shouldn’t be found out by the dorm office

This is all i remember so far, i’ll come with better posts (About food, traveling etc) later.

早安!& 晚安!wherever you are 🙂

the moments i like
