Renting in our beautiful community can be a rewarding experience; however, it is also challenging and difficult to secure an apartment from your home country. So it is highly recommended international students live with a local family when they first arrive. It will give them time to get acquainted with the area and meet friends before looking for an apartment. The Host Families (Homestays) link on the left will provide you with information on finding a family.
You should make sure you have your F-1 visa before you finalize your housing plans.
