Residential Life

International resident information

international students

Although students who attend the University of Missouri-Kansas City are not required to live on campus, we have a number of international students who choose to do so for the sake of convenience. Our residence halls do not have year-round housing; however, we do provide 12-month contracts in Oak Place Apartments for students who will not have some place to go during times when the University is closed. We highly encourage students who will be coming from abroad to make arrangements for housing prior to arriving at UMKC. Housing is not guaranteed and students must complete a housing contract before a spot will be reserved for them.
