Student housing in the USA
You’ll need a home away from home when you study abroad in the USA.
Once you have accepted your place on your chosen US program you can apply for student housing through your university. Depending on your university and degree level, homestays and private off-campus housing may also be available.
You’ll live as a member of a safe, comfortable and inspiring community, and receive comprehensive support to ensure your wellbeing and academic success in the USA.

What’s typically included:
“I lived on campus for four years. I really enjoyed it. First, the convenience — all your friends are living in the same area as you. And I’ve made friends by living in the dorms. We study together and go to the dining hall together.”
Rosa from China Earned a degree in Computer Information Systems and Accounting from Arizona State University
“Living in a dorm is pretty convenient because you’re very close to classes. Boston is pretty expensive, so just having a place where you can live and you do not have to pay a lot of money is pretty convenient.”
Ivy from Kenya Earning a degree in Psychology from Simmons University
