Early Arrival Housing

Prior to the start of the fall semester, temporary housing is available to all newly admitted international students (this option is not available prior to spring semester).  Spouses and children are not eligible to stay in International Early Arrival Housing. Reservations for international early arrival will open on June 1, 2022. Housing is available from July 24 - August 26, 2022.

Early Arrival requests for domestic students are only approved for extenuating circumstances, and limited space is available. If you cancel your housing contract, you are no longer eligible for early arrival housing, and your request will also be canceled. Early arrival requests for domestic students will open in early August 2022.
