The opportunity to study abroad or away is a hallmark of Arcadia University. Therefore, Residence and Commuter Life works closely with you to ensure that you have a housing assignment that is desirable and meets your needs upon your return from abroad.
If you wish to study abroad in the fall you should pay a housing deposit via the Arcadia University Online Housing Portal. This will reserve your space for the following spring. Via the Housing Portal, you will have the opportunity to search for roommates and identify a housing assignment, even while abroad. If you do not identify a space, you will be randomly assigned based upon your preferences indicated via the portal and space available.
If you are abroad or away during the spring and desire to live in housing the coming fall, you will proceed through the Housing Selection process with all other students. As Housing Selection is an online process, you are able to fully participate from just about anywhere in the world.
