We have designed this Arrival Handbook to provide you with information of the most frequently asked questions posed by international students when they first arrive. Please refer to this handbook frequently to help you ease into your new life here.

Rental Support Letter
If a landlord or property management company is asking you to provide a social security number or co-signer on a rental application, download and give them this Rental Support Letter to explain why these requirements create a barrier to renting in Eugene.
Off-Campus Housing Properties
The University of Oregon and ISSS is not necessarily endorsing these properties; we are sharing these housing resources and accommodations for your convenience. Students are responsible for any decision made to lease from any off-campus property management company or landlord.
