International Student Housing

We provide a unique experience in cooperative living for eight students from around the world. For more information, please call 765-743-4353 or e-mail at

We have a small 8-unit cooperative building which houses graduate students attending Purdue. Each student has their own room and shares a bathroom with one or two others, and also shares the kitchen, living room, and dining room.

The rooms are furnished with a twin-sized bed, a chest of drawers, a desk, and a chair for the desk. All utilities are included except telephone; cable TV and wireless DSL are available. Each resident has food storage space in the kitchen cabinets and refrigerators; the kitchen is equipped with pots & pans, mixing bowls, baking pans, dishes, and utensils. We have a parking area for students with cars, and a patio, grill, and back yard for outdoor entertainment. The IC is located on Russell Street and is within walking distance of Purdue’s campus, and also has convenient access to the City Bus line.

All residents are required to help with the weekly cleaning chores, and are expected to clean up after themselves promptly in all common areas. (We provide all the cleaning supplies.) In addition, the International Center expects the participation of our residents in some of our events and activities including our annual International Food Bazaar which takes place in April, and our Orientation events to welcome new international students in August and January.

Rents starting in March of 2012 will be $400, $420, $435, and $550, depending on room size, and are offered with a one-year lease. When the lease is signed, the damage deposit equal to one month’s rent and the Last (12th) Month’s Rent are due. The first month’s rent is due upon moving in. Lease terms typically run from May 15 to May 15, or August 1 to July 31. We occasionally have openings during the summer months, May 15 – August 15.

All rooms are rented for fall 2009 and spring 2010.
