Housing for International Students
Part of experiencing a positive transition into American culture and, specifically, York College is understanding what it will be like to live on campus. We suggest that you plan well in advance for this transition.
Some common housing issues occur at the beginning of the semester, and during summer sessions and holidays. The residence halls have a specific date at the beginning of each semester on which they will be open for students. This date is announced well in advance of the start of the semester. Do not arrive on campus before this date. There will not be a place for you to stay and personnel will not be available during these periods. Arriving at the correct time will enhance your college experience and make for a much more pleasant adjustment to a new culture. This includes planning for meals during periods where the cafeteria will be closed (e.g. Thanksgiving and Christmas Breaks, Spring Break, etc.)
During school holidays (Christmas and Thanksgiving Breaks, Spring Break) and during the summer, the residence halls on campus are closed, but the college apartments will remain open. It is recommended that international students, who do not live in the college apartments, arrange for alternate housing during these periods. Make these arrangements early so you can be sure everything is in place for a smooth transition between semesters.
For Fall semester of 2013, Residence Halls will open August 24, 2013.
