International Students

Welcome to the University of Minnesota! Read this page carefully as there is a lot of important information for you to know.

Housing Options during the Academic Year:

Temporary Housing

Not sure if you need temporary housing? If you are living in campus housing, but arriving on campus *before* your Housing contract begins: You will need to make arrangements for temporary housing as you are arriving in Minneapolis before the official stated date of your on-campus housing contract. (View contract dates here.)

Limited temporary housing is also available on campus under the Summer Guest Housing Program starting June 1st through mid August. This is an option for spouses and children who are not eligible for the International Reception Center.
