Enrollment & Housing
Applications for summer 2016 will be taken on a first-come basis, although there is no predetermined limit to the number of students that will be accepted. Please apply early to ensure your place in the program. In the 2014 program, 25 students from 14 schools and 4 countries participated in the program.
Faculty and students stay at the Sheraton Hotel where all classes are held. The hotel is located outside the city of Rhodes (10 minutes by bus). The Sheraton is a true 5-star hotel, with its private swimming pools, beach facility, 24-hour gym, health club, tennis and squash courts, etc. Tulane has negotiated special room rates and free access to the internet.
Following the final exam on June 10, there will be a banquet dinner for all program participants in the Sheraton Rhodes.
The guaranteed rates per person, which include breakfast, are:
Classical Room/Mountain View, Double Occupancy: $1275
Classical Room/Mountain View, Single Occupancy: $2175
Classical Room/Sea View, Double Occupancy: $1450
Classical Room/Sea View, Single Occupancy: $2525
These rates are for 19 nights, checking in on Sunday, May 22 and checking out following exams on Friday, June 10, 2016. The exact housing figures will be determined in January 2016, on the basis of prevailing economic conditions and the dollar-euro exchange rates. Other room types may be available as well. If interested, please contact the program coordinator, or Maria Landry.
Please note that the hotel also offers a half-board (buffet dinner) option for € 20.00 per person/day. However, for those who seek to minimize expenses, this option may not be the most cost-effective way to take care of daily meals.
For Students who have accommodation out of the hotel, a fee of $200 per person will be charged for use of the facilities of the Sheraton Hotel.
