International students are eligible, and encouraged, to live on campus. Living on campus offers many advantages: Convenience, Cost, Community, and Amenities.
- Convenience: Living in the residence halls or in family housing simply puts you in closer contact with the campus community and doings. You're close to classes and school events, have special parking lots so you won't have to search too much for a spot, and don't have to waste valuable study time preparing meals.
- Cost: The rates of living on campus are comparable to the costs of living off campus in the surrounding areas. We strive to make affordable housing available to everyone. Also, there are no hidden or surprise costs in furniture, deposits, or monthly bills. The rates students pay for their room are fixed and will not fluctuate with increased costs.
- Community: The greatest advantage to living on campus and one in which we take great pride. In hall programs or just hanging out in the lounge, you're bound to meet new people and make new friends.
- Amenities: Every residential complex has high speed wired and wireless Internet, cable television, and shared amenities like lounges and recreational areas.
