Given the proximity of the Salaya campus to the greater Bangkok metropolitan area, many students prefer to commute. Others, however, have chosen to live either on or close to the campus, a decision which the college strongly supports because it enables students to participate in extra-curricular activities and enjoy the full benefits of university life.
Mahidol University and MUIC provides a number of on and off-campus housing accommodations:
