Phase 2 - Housing Application & Deposit: Please complete as soon as possible after formal acceptance to SIUE.


  • Housing
    • Find out more about Housing options at SIUE here.  Exchange students normally live at Cougar Village (apartments), but other options are available in our Evergreen residence hall (at a higher cost) by clicking here.

  • Apply for Housing
    • You must apply for your housing after receiving your SIUE ID number from our office and then creating your e-ID.  To create your e-ID, please click here and choose "I want to get an e-ID".  This will generate an e-ID for you and will provide you with a password.  After completing this, you will be receiving a postcard in the mail that will be sent to the address you provided on your application. This postcard will give you instructions on how to verify your account (you may not receive this postcard within 14 days due to international mail).  After you receive the postcard, you must verify your account. 

    • With your e-ID, you may complete the housing application online. Please click here to complete the housing application online.

    • For application purposes, the class status of undergraduate exchange students is "upper-class or transfer students".

  • Please Note: The Bursar's office accepts Visa, Master Card, American Express, and Discover. If you don't have a Visa, Master Card, American Express, or Discover, please contact our office.

    • This $300 (USD) deposit is required when submitting the application for campus housing. The deposit consists of:
    • - $25 non-refundable application fee
    • - $75 damage deposit, returned to the student upon leaving SIUE, provided no damage has been done to the apartment
    • - $200 applied to the first month's rental charge

    • Please Note: There is an additional charge per day for accommodations occupied before the start of the contract period. August 18, 2018, is the start of the fall contract. International students who are required to arrive for Orientation before August 18, will be charged an additional $18-$36 per day for the orientation week, depending upon the type of room occupied.

    • Students may enter the United States up to thirty days before the beginning of the term. The University is unable to provide housing accommodations, provide transportation upon arrival, or assist students who arrive before August 12, 2018, for the fall term.

    • Students leaving after fall term must vacate the apartment by Friday, December 14, 2018 at noon. We recommend a late afternoon or evening flight so you have time to check out of your apartment in the morning when the Housing office is open and then get to the airport.  Students may stay in the United States up to thirty days after the term ends.

    • What is provided: The School of Business International Program will provide you with basic linens to include bed sheets, pillow case, pillow, mattress pad, light blanket, and a bath towel.  We also have a very basic supply of kitchen utensils (for cooking and eating) that exchange students may borrow while at SIUE.
