Room selection for International Center housing will take place on April 15. More info will be sent to you once you are accepted into the program.

No. Individuals accepted without a roommate will have the opportunity to connect with others accepted in order to find a roommate. All individuals wishing to be considered must complete an application.

What if I want to live in a single?
There are very few singles available in International Center. If you are able to select one of the few singles, you will still need a partner who has also been selected to live in IC. You and your partner will select single rooms in a suite-style setting.
