On-Campus Housing

Undergraduate Students

  • All admitted students will receive housing information via email.
  • Follow the instructions to arrange for on-campus housing.
  • If you would like to live in an internationally-themed residence hall, you may request Fairchild Hall on your Housing Application.
  • If you have questions about housing, please contact the Department of Housing directly.

Note: There are specific residence halls that remain open during vacation periods. If you plan to stay on campus during vacations, we recommend that you request a space in one of these residence halls.

Graduate Students

  • Graduate students who wish to live on campus are assigned to Babcock Hall.
  • You must contact the Department of Housing to submit an application.
  • International scholars without accompanying family members may also be housed at Babcock Hall.

Forest Park

  • Is an on-campus apartment complex which is available for international students and scholars with families.
  • If you are planning to arrive with your spouse and/or other family members, be sure to make your housing arrangements well in advance of arrival as space in Forest Park is very limited and there is usually a waiting list.

Off-Campus Housing

  • Off-campus housing is available in Durham and the neighboring communities of Dover, Portsmouth, Newmarket and Lee.
  • Lists of available rooms and apartments are available through the Memorial Union Building (MUB) and local newspapers, such as Foster's and Seacoast Online.
