- $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. January 10, 2016, is the start of the spring contact. Students who arrive for Orientation before January 10, will be charged about $18-$36 per day, 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 January 2, 2016, for the spring term. Our office is the only office that is able to handle these issues.
- Students leaving after the spring term must vacate the apartment by Friday, May 6, 2016, at noon. Students may stay in the United States up to thirty days after the term ends at their own expense, but not in University Housing.
- 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 of your own kitchen utensils. We also will give you a towel and blanket upon arrival for use while you're here.
- What you will supply: You should plan to bring or buy your own sheets, pillow, and any other household items needed during your stay. Affordable linens are available locally at Target or WalMart. It is not necessary to order special linens from Housing for your stay.
- The size of mattresses in Cougar Village is "Extra Long Twin" which averages 36"x 80" or 91.44x203.2 centimeters.
