3D Academy Accommodation: School Dormitory

Studying English abroad can be quite daunting. To lighten the burden, many ESL schools have also become boarding schools. In this way, students no longer have to worry about lodging as the school provides it, even in ways supportive of the student’s English studies.

In 3D Academy, there are two kinds of accommodation. A student can opt to stay in the school dormitory, which is in the same building as the school, or book in a hotel affiliated to the school.

What can students find inside the school dormitory?

SCHOOL CAFETERIA

Before you get to the rooms, you will have to pass through the school cafeteria. The place is spacious and cozy. However, this cafeteria is not only a place where students can dine but also where they can study when it’s not mealtime. For me, it’s a good study area when you don’t want to be studying inside your room (where temptation to sleep instead is high). Also, every Thursday, students gather here to watch an English movie after class hours.

THE ROOMS

A glass door at the rear of the restaurant serves as gateway to the rooms. The rooms are of three types: single, double and triple room, each referring to the number of persons the room can accommodate. Aside from the bed(s) and a bathroom equipped with a Hot & Cold Shower, the following furniture and appliances are also found inside the room: Cable TV, Wardrobe, Refrigerator, Air Conditioner and Desk.

(Unfortunately, I couldn’t get inside any room to take pictures as they were all occupied when I came there. So, I’ll just post them as soon as I can.)

STUDENT-SUPPORTIVE FACILITIES

As for the study rooms, the school currently offers three options for the students: the cafeteria (8:00am-12:00mn), library (24 hours) and speech lab (7:00am-12mn). The speech lab is also where various school events take place, such as graduation ceremony and Halloween Party. For students interested in Zumba and Yoga, they also have such sessions in this place.

All study and no play would make one dull, so the school has allocated certain areas for relaxation and playtime. It offers use of the table tennis and table soccer until 10pm, or unlimited access to any of their lounging areas.

In addition to all these facilities, the school has provided several Wifi routers and Wired LAN internet and several water dispensers around the dormitory. (Water does help a lot in studying, you know. Our brain definitely needs loads of it!)

Several wifi routers and water dispensers are installed along the hallway of the dormitory.

CURFEW

For the students’ safety and to support them in their English studies, the school has set a curfew: 11pm from Sunday to Thursday; 1am on Fridays, Saturdays and public holidays. But if a student doesn’t want to be bound by the dormitory rules, especially by the curfew, the school gives the option of booking a room in an affiliated hotel nearby (just a few minutes across the school!), as mentioned earlier.

This is just one of the ways 3D Academy makes studying English abroad not only effective but also convenient for its students. As for their other accommodation, I’ll see you on my next post!

They call me Sweden. But I'm not the country, nor do I come from it. Rather, Sweden lives in the Philippines! I am currently studying Mass Communication. A great interest of mine that's related to this is watching (almost all kinds of) documentary films! Also, I like singing and dancing. I'm not a professional but I sure love doing them. I never get tired of it!
