Arrival Assistance / Temporary Housing
We hope you will join our international community. We are looking forward to meeting you. If you would like arrival assistance, we have many FREE services to help you get settled into our city. We can arrange airport pickups, temporary housing, help finding an apartment, shopping trips, tours of Louisville, an annual “Bargain Event”, Welcome Party, and much more!! Just let us know your arrival information and what kind of assistance you would like and we would be happy to arrange for a friendly face to help you.
If you need temporary housing when you first arrive, we have volunteers who are willing to help. Individuals, as well as families, want to welcome you into their home for 1-4 days. This service is offered free of charge. Your temporary host will also help you get to the University, look for an apartment, and go shopping if you want.
Every year, OASIS sends out a survey to current international students, asking about their housing. They tell us about the best apartments for internationals around the medical and main UofL campuses. They also let us know if they hear of anyone needing a roommate. If you are currently needing an apartment, you can begin your search by looking at the current survey posted here. After you arrive, volunteers are here to help you find an apartment as well.
