Temporary Housing

Main Content

If you cannot move directly into your apartment or dorm room when you arrive in Carbondale then you will need to arrange temporary housing. Unfortunately, sometimes the dorms do not allow students to move in until after orientation begins. Since you must attend orientation, you will need to book a hotel.

The Super 8 Hotel in Carbondale offers a special reduced rate for new international students to live in until their permanent room is available.

Email oiss@siu.edu for additional guidance or to arrange a pickup from your hotel to orientation.
