HOUSING AND STUDENT LIFE

 

IS HOUSING ASSISTANCE AVAILABLE? IS IT GUARANTEED? HOW DO STUDENTS APPLY?

Yes, on-campus housing is guaranteed on a first-come first-served basis. We have negotiated a specialized hall “Global Scholars House” (GSH) where we will give priority placement to our incoming exchange students. It is a traditional dormitory with a remodeled common kitchen space where half of the residents on the floor will be domestic students and the other half international exchange students. The floors are co-ed, with single gender community bathrooms.

GLOBAL SCHOLARS HOUSE (ON-CAMPUS)

This is a place for U.S. and International students to share a supportive and welcoming community. we have reserved space for our incoming exchange students to get to experience this residency hall.

*Fall exchange students living on campus should let inboundexchange@okstate.edu know as soon as possible if they wish to live here since space is more competitive during the fall semesters.

 

*Spring exchange students living on campus are expected to live in the Global Scholars House since space will be available                                                                                                                                                                           

GHS is located in Iba Hall and is considered a Traditional Dormitory. Rooms are double occupancy (same gender), and are fully furnished. Floors are co-ed and have same gender shared bathrooms, there is a common newly redone kitchen, lounges, and FREE on-site laundry facility.

COST

Student Housing is charged to student’s OSU finance account once the semester has begun. Iba Hall is one of the most affordable residency halls! Please see: https://reslife.okstate.edu/housing/rates
