Foreign Student Issues

* Student Housing & Accommodation
* Student Health Insurance


Each institute has its own policy for housing and may offer a range of options for single and married students. In case of universities that do offer accommodation, you will be sent a description of the on- and off-campus options available as well as the actual housing application form.

Since most campuses have limited on-campus housing, it is extremely important to submit the application form early. University housing facilities may range from a dormitory, which may be shared with other students to an apartment for a family.

Some undergraduate universities may require students to live in a dormitory on campus.

Most graduate students live off-campus either by themselves or in small groups. Students applying can contact various Indian Students Associations in the universities they are applying to or write to us at Helpline for more details.

Most international students manage to find other international students for shared apartments. For a rough idea, check out Expenses for International Students

Rents vary greatly from state to state, depending on the location. All details can be found out from the associations.

Health Care

This is another very important criteria for financial planning. Most U.S. Institutes require that all students including international students be covered by an insurance policy that will protect them against medical, hospital bills if they get sick or are injured while studying at the college, as health care is very expensive in U.S.

The insurance policy is approximately about US $ 600 per year. It would be best to check this with the universities before you reach there.

The international student office of the business you choose to attend will supply the detailed information on insurance policies and the procedure to obtain proper coverage.

There are many good insurance deals available. However, this would require some research from your end. It would be a good idea to check out the various available options.
