Off-Campus Housing

Off-campus housing is another option available to international students. Apartment costs will depend on a variety of factors, including the location, size, and number of roommates (if any) sharing the residence. Average monthly costs range from $500 to $1,200 for shared housing, and $1,500 to $2,500 or more for studio, one, and two bedroom apartments. If considering renting an off-campus apartment, we recommend that you review the resources below prior to beginning your housing search.

Please note that while we are able to provide the resources below to assist you in your off-campus housing search, we do not arrange housing for students choosing this option.
