Living in USA

This informative page is an all-inclusive reference on how to live in USA during your academic career. As a student you’ll have the option of staying directly inside your University (called “on-campus”) or outside the University (called “off-campus”).

On-Campus Accommodation

American Colleges / Universities have two types of On-Campus accommodation that you can choose from:

1. Residence Halls / Dormitories

Here 5-7 students share one apartment together – a common space with individual bedrooms, lobby and kitchen. This is a great option for students looking to make friends, do bonding with the foreign student groups, dividing tasks such as laundry and cooking, and learning the best of respective cultures – all this and yet having your own privacy for learning, exploring and living. Mostly students of different genders live together and if you require a floor or dormitory specific to your gender then you can get the same by contacting your Institution.

2. Homestays

Quite a few American families live in spacious homes and rent out spare rooms to international students. This has a lot of benefits of its own, the major one being that the student lives in a house environment just like a family member. This is a great option for migrant students because it helps them quickly adapt to the new country’s enviornment. The price of Homestays is mostly reasonable and depends on the house area.

Off-campus (Private) Accommodation

The rent amount varies significantly according to the area and the facilities provided. In USA the rent amounts are are higher in main city areas or downtowns, and in big cities living in suburbs turn out to be a cheaper option.
