Hotels for Students

Hotels for Students

Beirut (Asian Student Bulletin).—When the new academic year starts in Lebanon, a novel idea on student housing will swing into action.

A hotel magnate has decided to offer rooms to students at comparatvely cheap rates — the cost of a room will be between Lebanese £.75-85 per month 'approximately U.S. $22-25).

There are about 6000 students in Beirut, who live in private accommodation because of lack of hostel accommodation.

These are the people who would benefit from this scheme.

The rooms can also be provided with telephones at the cost of L £5 per month (U.S. $1.50 approximately).

The only restriction to the students will be rather harsh —they cannot receive guests in their rooms.
