One hallmark of most American universities is the opportunity to live and learn with people you might otherwise never meet. Our residential and student life components provide a unique, immersive educational experience for Vietnamese students.

Residential Life

One of Fulbright University Vietnam’s distinct qualities is its tight-knit, inclusive, and engaging residential community. In the 2020/2021 academic year, Fulbright students are staying at The Waterfront, M1, 2, 4 Nguyen Luong Bang street, Tan Phu ward, District 7, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. Students are encouraged to live in the Residence to fully experience the liberal arts university model.

We provide a clean and safe living space in furnished apartment units with convenient proximity to campus. Each student apartment has an assigned Residence Advisor (RA) or Student Residence Advisor (SRA). Our main priority is to ensure that students are provided with an opportunity to have a community of peers, experience mutual respect with roommates and flat-mates, learn social responsibility in a personal context, get involved with the many University-wide activities available, and enjoy a safe and supportive living and learning environment.

However, we understand the disruptions COVID-19 brings to our community. As an educational institution, we strive to make our best effort to protect the health and safety of our students and our community as well as to help our students’ families better adapt to unanticipated economic changes in the face of the current social scene. Whereas previously all undergraduate students were required to reside on campus, it will now be your choice whether to live on campus, to reside with family, or to secure a private residence.

Whatever our students’ decisions will be, Fulbright is here to provide them all the support they need.

Student Life

At Fulbright, students set the agenda for their experience. Students independently organize student clubs, activities and projects around issues they are passionate about.

The Office of Student Life supports students to create and run their clubs, organizations, community services and other student-led initiatives that serve the broader communities or help others enrich their lives.

Some of the clubs that have been prototyped during the Co-design year include the Fulbright Art Lab, The Diplomat, Fulbright Book Club, The Kieu (Students’ Newspaper), Event Hub, Debate Club, Fulbright Pride and Alliance (supporting the LGBTQ initiatives), Architect Club, Food and Fitness, AEFECT (multimedia projects), Psychology Club, STEM Club and Music Club.

We also facilitate and provide support for career counseling and professional development, entrepreneurship, and creative start-up ideas. Student Affairs support and strongly encourage new and bold ideas, and all efforts in creating a truly student-center university.
