There are free laundry facilities at AIMS, including washing powder.

There is also free internet access.

Igsaan will provide everyone with an information sheet including this information when they arrive.

NOTE: South African tap water is fine and there is absolutely no need to worry about it. Bottled water is however sold in pretty much all shops and cafes in case you don't want to drink it.

Christine Spassione ( is making accommodations for ASI participants from the US.

Those staying in the AIMS dorm are welcome to start arriving at AIMS from 2:00 pm on June 9, 2007. No one may arrive before this as their students are only leaving on the morning of June 9, 2007. Meals will be arranged as from the evening of the 9th for those who are there.
