There is temporary housing available in on-campus dormitories from August 1st - August 16th for a charge. This housing must be reserved at least 7 days in advance. If you arrive on campus without a reservation, you will not be able to stay there. Email ISS to requst a reservation. Temporary community housing is also sometimes offered by families interested in meeting international students. Please let ISS know two weeks in advance if you would like to request temporary community housing.
Students living in the dorms or on-campus apartments must provide their own towels and bed linens (pillow, XL sheets (36x80 inches) and pillow cases, blankets and bedspreds). Please note, students who live off-campus should not purchase XL or "dorm" sheets because these sizes only fit beds on campus.
If you do not bring your own bed linens, you can order them in advance online and have them delivered to our office so they will be here when you arrive. You can order from any company online. Residence Hall Linens (RHL) is an independent retailer, so we do not endorse them directly, but it is an option. When ordering from any online retailer, please remember the following:
