A limited number of partner schools reserve university-affiliated housing for study abroad students. In these cases, pay careful attention to deadlines for securing such housing, as communicated by the host school. Some schools provide plenty of help for students to secure housing, although it may not be owned or operated by the partner school.
In many countries, however, colleges do not offer housing services. In these cases, you will find a place to live on your own initiative. Some schools offer limited assistance; others trust students to secure their own arrangements. Many families send students over a few days early to stay in a hotel/hostel and look at potential apartments. While this can seem daunting, all of our students successfully complete this task every semester. A smaller number of families secure housing before the students fly to their destinations, a process involving much time, trust (in the agent or web material provided), and effort. Home stays are rare, but when available, the host school often has a coordinating role.
