Campus Housing for ESL Students

Are you an ESL international student interested in living on campus?

Limited housing in campus residence halls is available for full-time ESL students. 
A separate on-line housing application and a room reservation deposit of U.S. $100 (payable online) are required after acceptance into the ESL Institute. This deposit is applied to the cost of rent. 

  • Interested students should contact the ESL Institute at the time of application to the ESL Institute for more details and assistance on applying for campus housing.
  • All housing is assigned on a first-come/first-serve basis, so apply for housing early! Campus housing generally is full about two months before Fall Term 1 classes start, so please apply BEFORE arriving on campus.
  • Students applying for housing for ESL Fall Term 1 or 2 will be contracted for one full academic year of housing (both main campus fall and spring semesters), or until they are no longer enrolled at APSU. Students applying for housing for ESL Spring Term 1 will be contracted for main campus full spring semester of housing, or until they are no longer enrolled at APSU.
  • All students living in University housing should provide their own bed linens, towels and other personal accessories, and are responsible for care and cleaning of the room.
