Students

Feinberg Graduate School (FGS) students (MSc and PhD), or visiting students are entitled to reside in student housing. For FGS MSc and Ph.D. full-time students, a housing request will be automatically placed. For Visiting Students a request will be sent to the housing team, and if available, will be confirmed. Our team will contact you after your formal acceptance to provide visa and health insurance instructions and to confirm your arrival plans.

Apartments are self-catering and furnished.  We do not provide kitchen equipment or bedding supplies – however, we do offer both for sale at cost price.
