A typical Moroccan meal.

In a first semester, all students studying on the program in Rabat stay with local host families.  Home-stays provide students with an authentically Moroccan experience in Rabat, and are the best means to facilitate full cultural as well as linguistic immersion. Students living with host families may reside throughout the city, usually within 30 minutes of campus.  

During the second semester of a full year at the School in Morocco, both male and female students may opt to move into independent apartments, at the discretion of the director (though because of cultural norms, women and men should not expect to live together in an apartment).
