HOUSING OF FOREIGN STUDENTS. GUIDELINES.
National Association for Foreign Student Affairs, Washington, DC.
THIS GUIDELINE IS ADDRESSED TO THE FOREIGN STUDENT ADVISOR AS THE COORDINATOR OF SERVICES TO FOREIGN STUDENTS. THE THREE BASIC FUNCTIONS THE ADVISOR CAN PERFORM ARE--(1) DISCUSSION TO BROADEN THE BASE OF AWARENESS, (2) REVIEW TO EVALUATE AND ASSESS PRACTICES AND PROBLEMS IN LIGHT OF RESOURCES, AND (3) INNOVATION AND MODIFICATION OF CURRENT PRACTICES. THE INITIAL BROCHURE SENT TO FOREIGN STUDENTS SHOULD INCLUDE A BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE HOUSING SITUATION AT THE INSTITUTION, A SUMMARY OF ON- OR OFF-CAMPUS HOUSING REGULATIONS, AND AN INDICATION OF THE ASSISTANCE AVAILABLE FOR HOUSING ARRANGEMENTS. SPECIFIC FOLLOW-UP ALTERNATIVES ARE OUTLINED. THE INSTITUTION MUST BE READY TO PROVIDE ARRIVAL ASSISTANCE AND PRELIMINARY ORIENTATION. SOURCES OF VOLUNTEER SUPPORT IN ARRIVAL ASSISTANCE ARE SUGGESTED. PRELIMINARY ORIENTATION AND METHODS OF ORGANIZATION DEPEND ON THE HOUSING FACILITIES AND THE REGULATIONS OF INDIVIDUAL INSTITUTIONS. LATE ARRIVALS AND KINDS OF HOUSING AVAILABLE ARE DISCUSSED. ON-CAMPUS HOUSING INCLUDES RESIDENCE HALLS, FRATERNITIES, COOPERATIVES, AND INTERNATIONAL RESIDENCES. CONSIDERATIONS RELEVANT TO ON-CAMPUS HOUSING INCLUDE FOOD SERVICES, VACATION PERIODS, GRADUATE HOUSING, AND HOUSING FOR MARRIED STUDENTS. OFF-CAMPUS HOUSING BASICALLY REQUIRES THE SAME KIND OF PREPARATION. ADDITIONAL CONSIDERATIONS ARE DISCUSSED. THIS DOCUMENT IS AVAILABLE FROM THE NATIONAL ASSOCIATION FOR FOREIGN AFFAIRS, 1860 19TH ST., N.W., WASHINGTON, D.C. FOR $0.50. (IM)
