Picture of International Cultural CenterTemporary Housing

As part of our service to international students, we offer temporary housing at the ICC for new LSU registered international students before, during and after the Arrival Service period. Due to the limited capacity of the apartment, only ten people can be accommodated at the same time. Rooms are shared accommodation.

The ICC does not make reservations. Beds are assigned on a "first come - first served" basis. The housing is not available for students' family members.

Outside of new arrival season for students, ICC temporary housing may be available for visiting scholars while they search for permanent housing.
