  • Please note : The Bursar's office accepts Master Card, American Express, Discover, VISA, and debit cards. If you do not have one of these options, please contact our office.

    • This $300 (USD) 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. January 12, 2019, is the start of the spring contract.  International students are required to arrive for Orientation by January 6, and will be charged about $18-$36 per day, depending upon the type of room occupied, for the additional housing time.

  • 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 5, 2019, 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 10, 2019, 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.  Please plan your departure flight in the afternoon or evening on May 10.
  • What is provided: The School of Business International Program will provide you with basic linens to include bed sheets, pillow case, pillow, mattress pad, blanket, and bath towel.  We also have 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 linens and kitchen utensils.
