HEALTH & SAFETY
Campus police (University police): These are officers employed by a college or university to protect the campus and surrounding areas and those who live, work and visit it.
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
Universities and colleges offer accommodation for international students on campus, these are known as dormitories. Dormitories are buildings with multiple rooms for students at the university and college, often 2- 3 people (of the same gender) are assigned to a room. Residents typically share bathrooms. Living on campus is ideal for first-year students, as it is close proximity to necessary facilities. Utilities are included in the rent and each college has a policy for international phone call charges. We encourage students to learn these policies once they arrive.
U.S. colleges and universities offer flexible meal-plans for breakfast lunch and dinner. You can pay in advance for these plans at the cafeteria or designated food establishments on campus at the beginning of the semester. Each items cost will be deducted from your account throughout the semester.
Some colleges or universities do not provide on-campus accommodation for international students. Off-campus housing office assists students in finding an appropriate place to live. Students will be liable for utilities costs and food (if these are not included in the agreement). The housing coordinators help students to find roommates and they also provide information on the local neighbourhoods.
Prior to committing to a rental agreement, we encourage students to familarise themselves with the area and decide whether they feel it may be a safe and convenient place to live. It is important to understand that the landlord is not responsible for any damage or loss of possessions. Students are encouraged to purchase ‘Renters insurance’ which the accommodation coordinators can provide you information on.
