Temporary Housing

Temporary On-Campus Housing -  UMD offers limited on-campus housing before the semester starts each fall for students living off-campus if their housing or accommodation is not ready when they arrive in Duluth.   This service is only available before fall semester.  Contact ISS ( for more information. 

Short-term Community Housing - Local families interested in meeting international students sometimes offer short-term (a few nights) of housing to students who need temporary housing.  This service is typically only available during times when UMD on-campus temporary housing is not available.  Please let ISS know at least two weeks in advance if you would like to request temporary community housing.
