Student and Parent On-Campus Accommodations

Experience what living on campus has to offer while on your orientation visit (both new student and transfer/adult student sessions). Campus housing for orientation is located in the residence halls and is available during the May, June, and July orientation sessions for students and families. You will meet other students, connect with other parents and participate in activities and events with current USI student leaders. 

Families and students staying on campus need to bring the following: 

  • twin sheets (standard length)
  • blanket
  • pillow
  • towels
  • toiletries
  • alarm clock
  • personal items

The price for the residential experience is $27 per person per night. This fee will be posted to the student's University account. No payment is due at the time of making a reservation. Indicate on your orientation reservation form if you and any family plan to stay on campus.

Orientation Housing will be in Newman Hall.
