Community Life

Tantur is more than a safe place to sleep and study, it is a multi-national living-learning community. Students should anticipate joining and building a community that is diverse in age, religion, country of origin, and cultural backgrounds while also having the freedom and flexibility to fulfill their other responsibilities and pursue other interests.
