Most College Houses are semi-furnished and include basic dining, seating, and kitchen utensils along with a washing machine and dryer. If you require additional cooking utensils you will need to source those yourselves. Occasionally, the College receives donations of furniture and household items from the local church members/community, which are then shared amongst the College houses. Previous students will sometimes leave furniture and household items behind when they move out for the new students arriving to use as well. All houses will have air conditioning and heating and we ask students to be conscientious with not overusing or leaving those running in an unnecessary manner.
It is not practical or indeed possible for CPSOM to conduct tours or private viewings of properties before you move in. You can, however, view the virtual tour of houses online to gain an understanding of what each one looks like.
CPSOM requires two weeks of rent as a security bond for any potential damage that occurs in the house. Each house bond covers the entire house with the damage being assessed at the end of the student year and it is taken out from the student's deposit. Should the house be in the same condition as when a student moves in, they can expect the full bond to be returned to them at the end of the year.
