Housing: Muscat

Students at Noor Majan–Muscat will stay at either Noor Majan student apartments or at hotel-apartments located within walking distance from the institute. Accommodation at either the Noor Majan student apartments or the hotel-apartments is covered by the course fee. The apartments are gender-segregated, located within walking distance from Noor Majan–Muscat campus. The accommodation is surrounded by a plethora of restaurants, shops, laundry services, and taxi and bus stations. The apartments consist of shared two, three, or four-bedroom apartments. Bedrooms are double occupancy, depending on capacities, students may upgrade their room to single occupancy at an additional fee. The fully equipped kitchen, lounge area, bathrooms, washing machines, and flat-screen TVs are for shared usage within one apartment. All apartments are equipped with Wi-Fi internet access. Bed linen is provided but you need to bring your own towels.

The package covers all accommodation (including excursions) for the duration of your stay with us.


During regular courses on class days, Noor Majan is pleased to offer students refreshments, tea, coffee, and delightful home-cooked Omani lunches at the institute. However, it’s important to note that during the holy month of Ramadan, students are kindly requested to enjoy their meals in a secluded area within the institute premises.

For those seeking additional dining options, there are numerous supermarkets in close proximity to the institute, as well as a diverse range of Arab, Indian, and fast food restaurants within walking distance from both student accommodations in Ibri and Muscat.

Host Families (Only for Ibri) 

Female students have the opportunity to live with Omani host families for the duration of their course. For this arrangement, Noor Majan has to charge an additional 150 OMR per month. The family provides a bed, wardrobe, and bed linen but we ask that you bring your own towels. Students will share the regular family meals. Our host families are carefully selected and understand the importance of Arabic language practice in the homes. They are eager to make students feel at home and as part of the family, and to facilitate their glimpse into Omani culture. Our host families typically live in detached villas or on farms; some of them live in extended families and/or polygamous marriages, and most families have children of different ages.
