Finding a place to live or stay temporarily is one of the first challenges you will face when you arrive in Atlanta. Some scholars begin the search for housing before they leave their home countries, seeking information from their departments via email and exploring web pages.
We have posted links to a number of apartment locations on the off-campus housing page.
Your hosting department should also assist you in finding housing. Make sure the department administrator is aware that you are looking for a place to live. Seek help and advice from the departmental administrator or your supervisor in looking for a place to live. “Networking” may be the best way to find a place.
You can also check classified advertisements in the local newspapers, and check bulletin boards in campus buildings, such as the Dobbs University Center.
You must make some decisions before you begin looking for an apartment or house. Here are some useful starting questions to get you thinking about accommodation
Decide (along with roommates, if you have them) what sort of accommodations you need.What is more important, the type of apartment or its location?
Is it important to be near good schools for your children?
Do you want to be close to shopping centers, grocery stores, etc.?
How long will you live there?
