International Students Accommodation: What You Need to Know

Are you a university-level student planning to pursue a course of study in the United States? Do you also plan to pursue an on-campus residence during your stay in America? Among the many options for international students accommodation in the U.S. is living on-campus. This option not only offers the utmost in terms of convenience, it also gives international students a great opportunity to make new friends and to learn the customs, traditions and language of the fellow classmates. Despite all the advantages, though, many international students will pursue this option with a bit of anxiety and trepidation, which, of course, is completely normal. While studying in a foreign land can alone be very intimidating, living closely with those from the host country can initially be almost paralyzing. To help ease your worries a bit, in this article we will provide a bit more information about on-campus international students’ accommodations, along with what you can expect while living at a U.S. university.

International Students Accommodations: Everything You Need to Know about On-Campus Living

Nearly every college and university in the United States offers on-campus living—a residency option ideal for an international student’s accommodation. Although in other parts of the world they are called residence halls, in the U.S. they are referred to as dormitories. Dormitories are large buildings that contain a number of student rooms (usually shared by two students), several large community bathrooms, a community kitchen and a community living space.

Student rooms usually come furnished with two beds, one or two desks and enough closet and storage space for each student. The rooms do not generally have private bathrooms, but instead students will use a community bathroom that usually includes toilets, sinks and a shower or tub. For meals, most residents of dormitories will flock to the on-campus cafeteria, which usually serves meals three times a day that are included in the price of the international student’s accommodation, as it is for US students as well. Those who prefer to cook meals for themselves can do so in the community kitchen.

The furnished living area is where most students will gather between classes and during the evening. Whether watching television, playing games, or just talking, this area of the dorm is the perfect place for international students to get to know their American counterparts and to make new and sometimes lifelong friends.

International students need not be concerned about supervision or safety in these dormitories. In each dorm there are supervisors, usually called “resident advisers” or “resident directors,” that are employed by the University. In most cases these supervisors are either upper-level students or graduate students, and they are responsible for making sure that each student follows the rules regarding the cleanliness of the dorm, noise limitations, and other rules that help ensure the safety and comfort of each student.

In terms of an International students accommodation, the dormitories located on most college and university campuses are safe, convenient, and in most cases, fun. While living in the dorms, not only are the classrooms and other University services in close proximity, but the opportunities available to meet new people, practice valuable language skills and soak up the American culture are virtually endless.
