Gushul Residency Length, Availability, & Fees

Gushul Residencies generally range in length from one month to a maximum of four months, though half month residences may also be requested. Residencies shorter than a half month are only arranged in special circumstances and are based on availability.

Residencies begin on the 1st of the month and end on the last day of the month.  Half month residences run either the 1st to the 15th or the 16th to the last day of the month.  Check in is at 4:00PM and check out is at 11:00AM.
