​International Student Services Housing


Saint Paul does not have any on-campus housing. You are responsible for finding your own housing. The international student advisor has an apartment list that can be sent to you by e-mailing international@saintpaul.edu and asking for the apartment list. We are located right in the City of Saint Paul, a city of over 300,000 people. There are lots of apartment options. It does take 3 to 4 weeks to find and secure an apartment. You can arrive 30 days before your program start date.

Average Rent
  • Studio apartments (one room) starts at $750/month.
  • A one-bedroom apartment starts at $900/month.
  • A large 5-bedroom house starts at $500/month per person.
  • Sharing a 3- or 4-bedroom apartment or a large 5-bedroom house would save on rent.
  • Utilities (electricity, heat, Wi-Fi) are on top of your rent and utilities are typically not included in the rent.
