All new students are encouraged to visit Upon Acceptance section for valuable resources about how to prepare for the first trip to Curacao, what to bring and how to adapt comfortably on the island. It also contains housing information including rates, room descriptions and pictures of the CMU dormitories.
On-site Campus Services promote comprehensive study environment by providing students with an 400 seat auditorium, several contemporary lecture halls enhanced with audio/visual technology, an extensive library with a computer center, copying and printing area and more. A convenient restaurant and cafeteria are available as well as numerous common areas designed for student study and relaxation.
Students Living on the Island are captivated by the unique blend of African, English and Dutch cultures of Curacao. They can immerse themselves in Curacao’s rich history, dining at a local restaurant in the picturesque capital of Curacao, as native music fills the air. Though many languages are spoken, English is widely-spoken.
With Student Organizations, ranging in scope from extracurricular activities, cultural associations, fraternities and sororities, performance groups, academic interest clubs, and service organizations, students actively take part in creating a lively and diverse campus community.
