Housing Undergraduate

International students are required to live in an approved program residence. Choosing where to live while studying for your degree is important – and indicating your accommodations preferences early is a required step in the enrollment process.

Browse available housing and tell us your top choices as soon as possible. Every option offers close proximity to campus, with no deposit, co-signer, or Social Security number required. If you need guidance at any point in the housing process, our helpful campus teams are always available.

*Please note that your preference is taken into account, but preferred pick is not guaranteed.

What’s included:

  • Furnishings
