Off-Campus Housing

We believe that on campus housing will be the most convenient option for your personal and academic needs. Please be aware that you can only live off campus if you are of the age of 21 or older with exceptions granted by the Director of Residence Life. Any housing off-campus living arrangements will be your responsibility to secure. This could mean living in a hotel for a week before you can obtain an apartment to move into. If this is your first time living in the US, we highly recommend that you live on-campus.
