Finding housing is an important step for living, studying, and working at the University of Minnesota. There are a variety of housing options available to students and scholars both on-campus and off-campus. We assembled the following resources and information for you about housing.

Most international students and scholars arrange housing when they arrive in Minnesota. If you will live off-campus, we recommend that you arrive three weeks in advance to search for housing and make other arrangements. Before the fall semester, inexpensive temporary housing is available specifically for international students. This will give you time to find the housing situation that suites you best.

Before the start of the fall semester, ew international students can stay in the International Early Arrival Housing. This temporary on-campus housing is an affordable option for new students needing somewhere to stay before they can move into their permanent on- or off-campus housing. For costs and reservations, please see International Early Arrival Housing.

We recommend that you do not sign a lease or contract  before viewing the property. For more information on the legal rules surrounding apartment rental please visit Student Legal Services.

We wish you a safe travel and look forward to meeting you!
