Family Resources for International Students

The university's childcare voucher program can assist students with affordable, quality childcare. 



Although most graduate students choose to live off campus, we do offer on-campus housing for both single students and families. Some residence hall floors are reserved for graduate students and students over 21. Some housing areas are available year round.

More information about on-campus housing is available here. Questions can be directed to the Housing and Residence Life.


Reasonably priced off-campus housing in the Flagstaff community is limited and in high demand. It is recommended that you arrive in Flagstaff several weeks before the start of the semester if you plan to find off-campus housing.

Exception will be made only for sponsored students who have adequate health insurance provided by the government or a sponsoring agency or for students who parents or spouse have health insurance coverage through U.S. employment.  Private policies are not accepted.
The university has a number of health insurance/healthcare options, including major medical insurance.
