Graduate Housing

The needs of graduate students are different from those of undergraduates, that is why we have a distinguished Graduate and International Student Community with your needs specifically in mind. Graduate Housing is a place where graduate students will live with and near other graduate students in a community of diverse individuals who share similar academic or social interests.

Besides the obvious advantages of being on campus, quick and easy access to classes and nearby campus facilities, studies show that students living on campus actually have a better opportunity for growth and success. If you are looking for affordable, mature, apartment-style living, the Department of Housing and Residential Life, The Graduate School, and International Programs invites you to become part of the Graduate and International Student Community.


To qualify for the Graduate and International Student Community, students must be enrolled and attending at least half time or more.

Leases are offered:

1. By the apartment (one designated lease holder with one monthly bill).  Private apartments are available based upon availability.
2. By the room (two monthly lease holders with split monthly billing).

The Department of Housing can also assign apartment-mates for those who don’t know someone with whom they would like to live. Apartment-mate assignments are based on gender and smoking preference. The monthly rent includes ALL utilities along with cable and internet service. Graduate Housing is located in buildings W and X of the Vista del Monte Apartments.

Specific objectives of the Graduate and International Student Community are:

  • To give special attention to graduate and international graduate students living on campus and to create a community of other students who share similar interests.
  • To focus on academic achievement in a productive and supportive setting.
  • To foster the union of the scholarly and social aspects of student life as it pertains to graduate and international students.
  • To promote collaboration among faculty, staff and graduate students.

Apartments feature spacious private bedrooms with shared living, kitchen and bath areas. Benefits of on-campus living include access to on-site computer lab and printers, on-site laundry facility and prompt maintenance.
