Fall Semester (August – December)

If you are arriving in August, it will be hot, but air conditioning is common in most buildings. It often gets cold at the end of fall semester. Sometimes it even snows in October! 

Winter Semester (January – April)

If you are arriving in January, pack appropriate weather items such as umbrellas, winter coats, gloves or mittens, hats, scarves, warm socks, and winter boots. It can be difficult to pack a large amount of clothing, so we recommend that you bring clothes that you can layer.
