Services for International Employees & Scholars

On Campus Housing

On-campus housing options are limited for visiting scholars.  Many of the apartments available will be unfurnished (no furniture).  If you wish to live on campus there are two options.

Sunflower Apartments

The Sunflower Apartments are operated and maintained by the Housing Office. These apartments are both furnished apartments and unfurnished apartments. However, there can be  a wait list during certain times of the year. If you are interested in living in Sunflower Apartments, we strongly suggest you contact the Housing Department early in the invitation period.

Naismith Hall

Many students live in the Naismith Hall apartment complex.  It is immediately adjacent to campus.  Rooms typically share a bathroom and they are single and double occupancy.  Please contact Naismith Hall directly with any questions.
