On-campus housing

If you would like to live in a residence hall, you must complete the housing request in your myStudyAbroad account by the deadline. You should indicate your room preference on the form, but note that Residential Life cannot guarantee placement in your preferred accommodations. You should complete your housing contract online prior to your arrive in Columbia. This contract is mandatory to secure housing in a residence hall. Do not select your room preference on this contract — your room assignment will be finalized when both the contract and housing request form are completed, and you will receive your assignment when you arrive on campus. More information about on-campus housing is available in the Exchange Student Orientation Handbook.

Off-campus housing

If you plan to live off campus, it is your responsibility to make your own housing arrangements. More information about off-campus housing is available from Off-Campus Student Services and in the Exchange Student Orientation Handbook.
