The Office of Study Abroad (OSA)
The OSA will be your host during your time at KU. Kate Gerken is the incoming exchange student coordinator so she will communicate with you throughout the application process, prior to your arrival, and during your time on campus. You will meet with Kate or another coordinator in the OSA to enroll in your classes after completing orientation. You are welcome to stop by the OSA, in 108 Lippincott, at any time with questions or concerns.
International Student Services (ISS)
ISS provides an experienced immigration advising staff to help answer questions and process paperwork for maintaining legal student immigration status. It also provides a wide range of services and programs to help international students adjust to cultural life at KU. From the week-long “You at KU” orientation program to ongoing programs to academic support for success, ISS is here to help international students have a rewarding and fulfilling experience while at KU.
Department of Student Housing
The majority of exchange students opt to live in on-campus residence halls or apartments. Once admitted to KU, you will receive an acceptance email with details about how to contract for on-campus housing. You can explore housing options at www.housing.ku.edu. For questions related to on-campus housing, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
