    • You must complete this after receiving your SIUE ID from our office
    • Once you receive your SIUE ID number, you may create 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 form, 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 this 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 Master Card, American Express, and Discover. VISA credit or debit cards are NOT accepted. If you don't have a 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 20, 2016, is the start of the fall contract. International students who are required to arrive for Orientation before August 20, 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 13, 2016, for the fall term. Our office is the only office that is able to handle these issues.
    • Students leaving after fall term must vacate the apartment by Friday, December 16, 2016 at noon. We recommend an afternoon 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 has a very basic supply of kitchen utensils (for cooking and eating) that exchange students may borrow while at SIUE. We offer this so you do not need to pack or buy all your own kitchen utensils. We also will provide you with bed sheets, a pillow, mattress cover, a blanket, a towel, and a washcloth upon arrival for use while you're here.
    • What you will supply: You should plan to bring or buy your own household items needed during your stay. If you choose to bring or purchase your own bedding, the size of mattresses in Cougar Village is "Extra Long Twin" which averages 36"x 80" or 91.44x203.2 centimeters.
