If you need assistance in finding housing, there is a range of options available, though it depends on your financial situation.
The least costly option is staying with a “Host Family”. A “host family” is a family who offers its home as a place for an international student to stay. There is usually a pre-arranged fee involved and paid monthly. This provides a unique cultural experience.
A second option is living on campus in approved housing, usually like a dormitory. This is an excellent way for international students to become immersed in the culture of American college life. Getting around is easy because this kind of housing is usually very close to campus, if not on it outright.
A third option for older students or those with less restrictive budgets is leasing or renting an apartment, a condominium, or even a house. This option also allows students to choose whether to live alone or with one or more roommates.
Regardless of your preference, our job here at USIEC is to help you find the right place for you to live. Our overall objective is to help you negotiate all the obstacles that this process produces.
Once all documents have been submitted and approved, the next step of your journey begins. We will help you each step of the way before, during, and after your arrival at your designated academic institution.
In addition to assisting you with your accommodations needs, we can also assist you in securing transportation, as well, for any of our programs.
