On Campus Housing

Students wishing to apply for on-campus housing must include their CUA Housing Application with the initial application materials. Exchange Students do not need to submit a housing deposit. After final program acceptance by CUA, completed housing applications will be forwarded to Housing Services for processing.

On-campus housing at CUA is highly desired and space is limited. Although campus housing is not guaranteed for Exchange Students, early application to the program is encouraged to facilitate consideration for available housing. Generally, Exchange Students will receive confirmation of their Fall housing assignment by late-July and for the Spring semester by mid-December. For those students planning to be at CUA for both Fall and Spring semesters, please note that housing is not available during Christmas Break as the residence halls are closed.

Students should check their CUA student e-mail to receive updates on their housing assignment before their arrival. The dates the residence halls open and close are posted on the Housing Services website. Exchange Students with significant international travel itineraries may request to arrive 1-2 days earlier or remain a day later. Generally, requests to arrive any earlier or stay any later will not be approved.

The cost of housing is the responsibility of the visiting student, and will be charged to the CUA student account. For your convenience Housing Services sponsors several Move-in Services including the sale of XL twin sheets (all mattress at CUA are twin XL). International students that choose to purchase these linens may have them mailed to Housing Services; Housing Services will then deliver them to your room. For more information on housing options, CUA room rates, and services, please visit the CUA Housing Services website.
