All International Accelerator students are guaranteed housing as part of the program. Living in program housing will enhance your university experience and is mandatory.*


Given the current circumstances surrounding COVID-19 and the heightened awareness they have brought related students’ health and safety, all students will be placed in YOUnion apartments for the Fall 2020 and Spring 2021 terms. YOUnion apartments feature private bedrooms with private bathrooms and each kitchen and living area is only shared by two students. These units give students the greatest control over their personal living space.
